Judge Keeps Exhibit Sealed In Las Vegas Sands Lawsuit

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Nevada judge is keeping sealed a legal exhibit that a newspaper, a union and a Washington, DC-based advocacy group sought to make public in a closely-watched wrongful termination case against casino company Las Vegas Sands Corp., Sands China Ltd. and the companies' chairman Sheldon Adelson.

Guardian News & Media, the Campaign for Accountability and union Unite Here argued Thursday the public should see the exhibit the groups say may tie the companies to organized crime in Asia.

Clark County District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez dismissed the motions to unseal without prejudice saying law allows her to seal documents that include commercially sensitive material. The exhibit was admitted to decide the case's jurisdiction. Gonzalez left open the possibility the groups could try again when the case reaches trial.
