Steve Wynn to Judge

Shut Joe Francis Up ...

FOR GOOD!

0926-steve-wynn-joe-francis-tmz
Casino mogul Steve Wynn wants to make damn sure Joe Francis never calls him a wannabe murderer ever again -- and is now asking a judge to put a big fat sock in Francis' mouth.

Wynn just filed a request for a permanent injunction against Francis, claiming the "Girls Gone Wild" honcho is likely to continue to make false and defamatory accusations if the court doesn't stop him.

Wynn says he's afraid Francis is a loose cannon if left unchecked -- and any accusations he makes against Wynn are likely to cause irreparable harm ... specifically accusations about Wynn trying to murder him.

You'll recall, Francis recently LOST after Wynn sued him for defamation. Wynn claimed Francis made bogus claims that Wynn threatened to have him murdered over a gambling debt.

Francis was already ordered to pay $40 million in damages in the lawsuit, but Wynn is worried that's not enough to stop him from continuing to run his mouth.

These two men have way too much time on their hands. And Joe needs to quit making so many enemies--it sure hasn't gotten him anywhere.

Joe Francis is a despicable human being. He's exploited young women for gain for years. Glad to see he got bent over on this :)

I admire Wynn for suing Francis and winning. The only thing is is that Francis is just too stupid and too big of a punk to learn to keep his big mouth shut.

You know the way Wynn is going after Joe....I am starting to believe Joe's stories might just be true.

Why does TMZ (tm) always show photos of Steve Wynn with a Band Aid (tm) on his forehead? Is there an unstated corporate relationship like TMZ (tm) has with the Kardashians? When will Harvey address this?
