Neither Wynn Resorts nor Sinatra paid any money to her as part of the settlement, the company said. As part of the settlement, Steve Wynn paid Elaine Wynn a sum, according to people familiar with the matter. They did not disclose the figure. “I am pleased this litigation has now been resolved,” Elaine Wynn said.

The settlement ends a six-year legal battle in Nevada court involving the Wynns and a former business partner, Universal Entertainment Corp. 6425, -2.98%  . A shareholder agreement dating to 2010 had prohibited any of the parties from selling shares without the permission of the others.
