Girls Gone Wild filmmaker JOE FRANCIS has been ordered to pay casino boss Steve Wynn $7.5 million (£4.7 million) in the latest round of the pair's long-running legal battle.
Wynn filed a defamation lawsuit against Francis, claiming his reputation as a businessman was tainted by remarks the soft porn mogul made about how Wynn deceived his high-end customers.
Francis' lawyer, David Houston, tells, "We will appeal this order. Joe was not allowed to defend himself."
