LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A Las Vegas jury is still weighing whether it will award Hong Kong businessman Richard Suen a judgment against Las Vegas Sands Corp., the casino giant run by billionaire Sheldon Adelson.

Richard Suen claims he was owed $328 million for helping the Las Vegas-based company secure a lucrative gambling license in the Chinese enclave of Macau.

Suen says he was hired by Las Vegas Sands to curry favor with the Chinese government and was successful.

Las Vegas Sands attorneys argue Suen is owed nothing because he didn't make good on his promise to aid company executives in 2000 and 2001.

The jury listened to five weeks of testimony and argument, and has been deliberating on and off since Friday evening.
