LAS VEGAS (AP) - The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to settle whether the Wynn Las Vegas can require dealers to share tips with supervisors.

The court on Monday denied a petition by the Wynn Las Vegas to overturn a lower court’s ruling that the casino-resort must end the tip-splitting practice.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Wynn Resorts is the only Las Vegas gaming operator requiring dealers to share 15 percent of tips with their pit boss.

The court’s denial sends the case back to a state judge who will hear both sides.

Wynn spokesman Michael Weaver says the company will “vigorously defend” its position and expects a favorable ruling.



Dealer union representative Kanie Kastroll says the high court’s denial is a milestone for the dealers.

Dealers could recover lost compensation from May 2011 and onward if they prevail.
