Casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson set to return to court
News

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Billionaire businessman and prominent Republican donor Sheldon Adelson is set to return to a Clark County courthouse for a second day offering testimony related to a wrongful termination lawsuit against him and his company.

The Las Vegas Sands Corp. CEO and chairman first appeared on the stand all-day Tuesday and was expected to return Friday for more questions.

Lawyers representing Steven Jacobs who had been CEO of Sands China Ltd. based in China until he was fired in 2010 are arguing that the case should proceed in Clark County.

Jacobs' wrongful termination claim can't proceed until Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez decides if she has jurisdiction to consider the lawsuit since it involves a foreign company.

Las Vegas Sands spun off Sands China in 2009. Adelson is now CEO of both companies.
