Because Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis had such a stellar reputation in the first place!
To recap, back in 2009, casino boss Steve Wynn filed a lawsuit against Joe Francis over $2 million of gambling debts.
Then in February, we heard that Joe hadn't paid the debt, and he was ordered to stand trial against criminal charges of Felony theft and fraud.
Now, we're hearing that JOE
is finally going to pay up is filing a lawsuit against STEVE for "wrecking his reputation," and he's seeking "an unspecified amount of damages."
Ugh. Just pay your debt, Joe! This lawsuit is absurd!
