Elaine Wynn Succeeds in Booting Director From Casino Board

In a surprise move just two days before its annual meeting, Wynn Resorts Ltd. announced the resignation of two directors, including one who co-founder Elaine Wynn urged shareholders to vote against. Robert Miller, a former Nevada governor, also tendered his resignation. The company is trying to bounce back from a sexual-harassment scandal involving former Chief Executive Officer Steve Wynn, who is Elaine’s ex-husband, and board changes have been touted by the company as a sign of progress.
