Wayne Newton Lawsuit: Lawyers Deny Allegations Of Sexual Harassment, Mismanagement And Animal Abuse

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS — Wayne Newton's lawyers are denying allegations of mismanagement, animal abuse and sexual harassment lodged in a lawsuit against the Las Vegas entertainer by a business associate. And they're responding with counterclaims alleging breach of contract and fraud.

Documents filed Wednesday in Nevada state court say allegations in a lawsuit filed two weeks ago by the company that bought rights to convert Newton's home into a tourist attraction are "scurrilous and scandalous."

Attorney Bryce Kunimoto tells The Associated Press he's confident the legendary crooner and his family will be vindicated.

Kunimoto says the legal fight with CSD LLC, CSD Management LLC and DLH LLC boils down to a business dispute.

Both sides are due before a Clark County District Court judge Thursday on a restraining order that Newton is seeking.
