Sands ordered to pay HK businessman $1.25m in legal fees
LAS VEGAS (AP) - A judge is awarding a Hong Kong businessman who sued Las Vegas Sands Corp. more than US$1 million (S$1.25 million) to cover his expenses for the six-week trial.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Clark County District Judge Rob Bare announced his decision on Wednesday.
The US$1.03 million award is 10 per cent less than plaintiff Richard Suen had asked for. Sands had asked for a 90 per cent discount on Mr Suen's stated expenses.
About half the amount went towards constructing and presenting a slideshow of evidence and arguments.
