(TMZ) Joe Francis hopefully saved a bunch of money from his "Girls Gone Wild" empire, because a judge just ordered him to pay Las Vegas mogul Steve Wynn $7.5 million.

Wynn filed the defamation lawsuit, after Francis said he was going to reveal how Wynn deceived his high-end customers.

The judge determined Francis damaged Wynn's reputation to the tune of $5 million. And the judge heaped on an addition $2.5 million in punitive damages, which serves as punishment for reckless disregard for the truth.

Francis' lawyer, David Houston, tells TMZ, "We will appeal this order. Joe was not allowed to defend himself." more on this story
