Republican donor Sheldon Adelson filed a $60 million defamation lawsuit yesterday against the National Jewish Democratic Council. The lawsuit alleges the Washington-based Council said Adelson personally approved of prostitution in resorts owned by Sands China Limited. Adelson accuses the Democratic Council of assassinating his character.
The AP reported:
Billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson has filed a defamation lawsuit in New York against the National Jewish Democratic Council and top officials, saying they made libelous statements regarding his political contributions.


The lawsuit filed Wednesday in federal court in Manhattan seeks $60 million in damages. Adelson is chairman and chief executive officer of Las Vegas Sands Corp. and donates to Republican campaigns.


The lawsuit alleges the Washington-based Council said Adelson personally approved of prostitution in resorts owned by Sands China Limited, a subsidiary of Las Vegas Sands. The suit accuses the Council of “assassinating” Adelson’s character.


The Council said its reports referenced mainstream press accounts and were “wholly appropriate.”
Adelson had previously threatened to file suit against the DCCC until they apologized for similar statements last month.
