Steve Wynn to Judge

Shut Joe Francis Up ...

FOR GOOD!

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.

If I had as much money as these guys I'd probably learn how to play golf or something. Maybe I would buy some stuff for orphans even.

I'm no lawyer but I still don't get how you can sue someone for 40 million because they said something about you in court?

Doesn't it seem like Steve Wynn is trying to bully Joe Francis in the courtroom? What is this casino guy so scared of? The truth maybe?

Has Joe said anything since the last lawsuit? Why would Wynn be going to court again? Got something to hide?
