LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Wynn Resorts believes its incoming neighbor on the north Strip copied its design, according to a new copyright and trademark infringement lawsuit against Resorts World.
Wynn said it has the rights to the concave façade, curved bronze glass and horizontal banding.
The lawsuit filed Friday claimed this is not just a mistake or coincidence. Rather, Wynn states it has proof that Resorts World Vegas LLC asked a local architect for an identical design.
Wynn argued in the U.S. District Court filing that similar style will confuse or deceive visitors into falsely believing the two are connected.
In the lawsuit, Wynn asked for any profits from Resorts World based on its design.
Resorts World has not publicly commented on the lawsuit.
A judge will have to decide whether the two buildings are clearly similar.
The $4 billion, Chinese-themed project is still under construction. Resorts World is set to open late 2020.
