Wynn sues Genting group over lookalike casino design

U.S. casino giant Wynn Resorts Ltd. accused Genting Malaysia Berhad's Las Vegas casino of being designed too similarly to Wynn's Las Vegas and Encore sites across the street, Bloomberg reported, citing court filings.

Genting's Resorts World Las Vegas has yet to open, though the construction site already looks "substantially and confusingly similar," as the site contains the trademarked "concave facade and horizontal banding above and between the lines of glass panes," the documents said.

Resorts World Las Vegas will supposedly have a "unique" Chinese theme and will compete with other Las Vegas casinos for Asian gamblers. Genting representatives didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

On Nov. 28, Genting sued Walt Disney Co.and 21st Century Fox Inc. for abandoning an agreement to license a Fox World theme park in Malaysia.
