This motion was filed Monday in Clark County District Court by attorneys representing Steven C. Jacobs, a party in a wrongful termination lawsuit against the Las Vegas Sands Corp., Sands China Ltd. and Sheldon G. Adelson. A hearing on the motion is set for Feb. 18, and the case is scheduled to go to trial on June 27.
A wellness coach firm has filed a lawsuit claiming MGM Resorts breached its contract to hire a cheaper vendor, then attempted to steal away the former firm’s coaches and trade secrets.
When MGM gave notice in June that it wanted to end its contracts, Pennsylvania-based Wellness Coaches USA had 22 health coaches working with employees at the casino company’s Las Vegas Strip casino-hotels, its corporate headquarters and MGM Grand Detroit, MGM Goldstrike Tunica and Beau Rivage.
Spokespeople for MGM Resorts and the new vendor, Life Time Fitness Inc., both said the lawsuit was without merit.

A Nevada judge on Thursday denied an attempt to unseal a private investigator’s report in a wrongful termination case against casino company Las Vegas Sands Corp., Sands China Ltd. and the companies’ chairman Sheldon Adelson.
The ruling came after Guardian News & Media, the Campaign for Accountability and the union Unite Here argued that the public should see the exhibit that the groups say may tie the companies to organized crime in Asia.
The exhibit is part of the ongoing wrongful termination lawsuit filed by former Sands China CEO Steven Jacobs against the company and Adelson nearly five years ago.
