A group of former lawyers connected to Wynn Resorts were involved in long-running efforts to conceal allegations of sexual assault and misconduct against the casino giant’s founder, Steve Wynn, according to a report released Tuesday by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission.

The 200-page report was released in conjunction with a three-day hearing the regulatory body kicked off on Tuesday to determine the suitability of the company for a Massachusetts gaming license, and whether it will be able to run a casino and resort scheduled to open this summer in Boston.

The report says a group of executives, including two former general counsels, and outside lawyers disregarded company policies by failing to report allegations of sexual misconduct against Wynn to the company’s board. The report also notes that most of the individuals involved are no longer at the company, including Steve Wynn, who resigned in February last year.
