Sheldon Adelson sued Hong Kong-based Wall Street Journal reporter Kate O’Keeffe for libel, seeking damages for a December article in which he was described as “foul-mouthed,” in a complaint filed in Hong Kong, the Journal reported. The article, to which two other reporters also contributed, detailed the fight playing out in US courts between Mr. Adelson, the chairman and CEO of the Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE: LVS), and Steve Jacobs, the former CEO of the company’s Macau operations who filed a wrongful termination lawsuit in 2010. The article, which ran in early December, contrasted Mr. Jacobs, “a 6-foot-5-inch-tall Ivy League graduate who colleagues say rarely curses,” with Mr. Adelson, “a scrappy, foul-mouthed billionaire from working-class Dorchester, Mass.” The suit, filed on Feb. 22 in Hong Kong’s Court of First Instance, seeks “damages, including aggravated, exemplary and special damages.” The WSJ is representing Ms. O’Keeffe.
