Joe Francis Sues Steve Wynn

Your Lies

Almost Destroyed Me

11/1/2011 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Francis Sues Steve Wynn
Joe Francis just filed a lawsuit against Steve Wynn ... claiming the massive criminal case that nearly put him behind bars last year would never have happened if the casino mogul hadn't lied to the D.A.

TMZ broke the story ... Francis was accused of intentionally skipping out on a $2.5 million gambling debt at Wynn Casinos in 2010 -- but the charges were dropped in September due to lack of evidence.

The "Girls Gone Wild" honcho filed the lawsuit earlier today in L.A. Federal Court, claiming Wynn and his staff intentionally lied to Vegas officials in order to get the D.A. to press criminal charges against him.

According to Francis, the alleged lies destroyed his reputation, cost him an arm and a leg in legal fees, and nearly landed him in prison -- for nothing.

Now, Francis is out for payback -- demanding Wynn cough up an unspecified amount in damages ... but you can bet it's in the millions.

A rep for Wynn had no comment.

Have you seen the movies Goodfellas and Casino. You don't mess with Las Vegas casinos. Joe Francis may end up in a hole in the desert.

Ruined his reputation?? His reputation sucks to start with. This guy is a road apple, and an ugly, obnoxious ass to boot.

========================

Pfffft, what reputation? The one about him being a skeeze, lowlife, douchebag, drug-dealing, rapist, pedophile, tax-evading, women-beating misogynist? The only thing that would bring down that reputation is murder!!

I predict Joe Francis will eventually wig out. I mean some more. Steve Wynn better amp up the security. Joe's like these guys. Absolute control freaks.

Steve Wynn should file a counter-suit in Bay county Florida. They love him there almost as much as Wynn does. Francis wouldn't show, default judgement is Wynn's, more hilarity and jail for the douchenozzle Francis.

"According to Francis, the alleged lies destroyed his reputation..."

Ok, stop right there. Joe Francis is a pornographer who's such a perv that he has to prey on drunken 18 year old chicks on spring break to get he materal for his pathetic enterprise; his reputation is as a whining douchebag loser. You can't get much lower than that...
