LAS VEGAS (AP) — Wynn Resorts board chairman Phil Satre says he hopes to have the company's entire board of directors and CEO Matt Maddox appear before the Massachusetts Gaming Commission when it considers whether to grant Wynn Resorts a gambling license.

The license is for a $2 billion casino and hotel scheduled to open near Boston next year. The licensing decision is on hold pending a lawsuit by former CEO and chairman Steve Wynn to block the release of the commission's report into sexual misconduct allegations against him.

Wynn resigned Feb. 6, days after the Wall Street Journal reported about allegations that he engaged in sexual misconduct with female employees while he headed the Las Vegas-based company. Wynn denies the allegations.

Satre told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the company moved swiftly to "take charge" and "react appropriately" to the allegations.
