Adelson sues Wall Street Journal reporter for calling him “foul-mouthed


Sheldon Adelson sued a Wall Street Journal reporter for libel for calling him “foul-mouthed.”

The lawsuit filed on Feb. 22 seeks "damages, including aggravated, exemplary and special damages," for a December article co-written by Kate O'Keeffe. Only O’Keefe is named in the suit, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

"We will vigorously defend Ms. O'Keeffe in this lawsuit," said a Wall Street Journal spokeswoman, declining to comment further.

Last August, Adelson sued the National Jewish Democratic Council for defamation after the organization quoted news reports alleging that he had approved of prostitution at his properties in Macau, China. The suit has not been settled.
