    Wall Street Journal ^ | February 2, 2018 | Chris Kirkham, Elizabeth Bernstein and Rebecca Ballhaus
    In a series of meetings with his Las Vegas casino personnel in recent days, casino mogul Steve Wynn urged employees to rally to his side following sexual-misconduct allegations against him, according to audio recordings of the meetings made by participants. Mr. Wynn, the chairman and chief executive of Wynn Resorts Ltd. WYNN -2.40% , didn’t directly address the allegations against him, according to the recordings reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. Instead, he stressed that he considers his employees a “family.” In difficult financial times in the past, he said, “we were a family. It wasn’t every man for himself....

    Hollywood says it’s done with Harvey Weinstein, James Toback, Kevin Spacey and other figures ousted for misconduct through the #MeToo movement. But what about Woody Allen? His film distributor, Amazon, the presenters of his musical “Bullets Over Broadway,” and colleagues are now grappling with renewed scrutiny of allegations that Mr. Allen molested his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow in 1992 when she was a child. Mr. Allen has steadfastly denied the claims and was not charged. But at a moment when women’s voices and stories have been amplified as never before, Ms. Farrow’s account carries more force — as even defenders...

    The University of Colorado has agreed to pay a suspended male student $15,000 and will not disclose without a waiver the details of his disciplinary record — which includes convictions under the campus judicial process in a 2013 sexual assault case. The agreement was made with the CU junior known only as "John Doe," as he identified himself — with a judge's permission — when he sued the university last year under Title IX, the federal gender-equity law. The university will not reveal his identity to the public and agreed to provide John Doe with a positive reference. John Doe...

    Sorority sisters at the University of Virginia were ordered by their national chapters to avoid fraternity events this weekend — a mandate that many of the women said was irrational, sexist and contrary to the school’s culture. It’s not about one night of parties, several students said, but about their ability to make their own choices. And they’re not taking that lightly. The rule came after a traumatic fall semester in Charlottesville, including the violent death of a student and now-discredited allegations of a gang rape at a U-Va. fraternity. Both forced a thorough examination of campus safety, drinking culture...

    A new, sharply toned public service announcement produced for the White House’s ongoing anti-campus sexual assault campaign is aimed at men, who research shows often don’t intervene when they witness sexual violence in their midst. President Obama has tried to make fighting campus sexual crime a component of his second-term legacy. Where previous efforts have focused on empowering women to turn in perpetrators and speak up about campus violence problems, the new effort aims to teach young men to break continuing taboos about getting involved when they see other men in the process of victimizing women, according to top Obama...

    NEW YORK (AP) - News organizations that cover the White House sparred with the Obama administration on Thursday over access issues for photographers and rules for briefings. Representatives from Obama's press office held a conference call with photo editors, who are concerned that the administration prefers distributing photos taken by a White House photographer in cases where photojournalists have been permitted access in the past. It was unclear whether the two sides had reached any accommodation. The Associated Press, Reuters and Agence France-Presse refused to distribute photos taken by the White House of the new president on his first day...
