The lawsuit hearing between Genting Las Vegas and Wynn Resorts has been moved to January 29.

The U.S. District Court Judge Gloria Navarro has directed Wynn Resorts and Resorts World to attend a hearing on January 29 in Las Vegas to present arguments on how Resorts World Las Vegas could produce a property design that doesn’t resemble Wynn and Encore.

It will be recalled that Wynn Resorts filed a lawsuit against Genting Group’s Resorts World Las Vegas accusing the Genting of trademark infringement and unfair competition of its under-construction $4bn Las Vegas property set to open in 2020.

The plaintiff allege that the Genting’s use of curved bronze glass coupled with horizontal cream-coloured banding between the glass panes infringed on its architectural design and requested an injunction that would temporarily halt construction of the property.

In January, the defendant claimed that Wynn’s assumption was speculative since the project is in her early stage of construction.

“Genting (Resorts World’s parent company) remains confident that once all of the relevant facts are presented the company will defeat Wynn’s baseless claims,” Michael Levoff, senior vice president of public affairs and development for Genting, said in an emailed statement to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
