A settlement is pending in casino mogul Steve Wynn's lawsuit seeking to block the release of Massachusetts' investigation into allegations of sexual assault against him.

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission voted Wednesday to authorize its legal counsel to finalize an agreement with Wynn to dismiss his lawsuit filed in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Specific terms weren't disclosed, but the commission said the deal would guarantee access to the report its investigators have compiled but have been unable to release. Brian Kelly, a Massachusetts lawyer representing Steve Wynn in a separate matter, said the agreement "ensures that no privileged materials are improperly utilized" when investigators turn in their report to the commission.

The commission is considering whether Wynn Resorts - the company Steve Wynn founded but stepped away from last year - is still suitable to hold a state casino license in light of the misconduct allegations, which Wynn has denied.
