LAS VEGAS (AP) - A former New York hedge fund manager has won $160.5 million in his lawsuit against the Las Vegas Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2qeIZat ) the verdict in David Moradi’s lawsuit came this week. His 2014 lawsuit claimed he suffered a traumatic brain injury after Marquee nightclub security guards and manager shoved him to the ground. A Las Vegas neurosurgeon diagnosed his injuries.

Defense attorneys say the dispute arose after Moradi reacted aggressively when the general manager told him there was a problem with his signature. They claim that Moradi did not suffer injury or permanent damage during the encounter.

Moradi says his hedge fund had to be shut down and he has not found work in the field since. The lawyers for both sides declined to comment on the verdict.
