Steve Wynn Wants Court To Silence Joe Francis

(TMZ) Casino mogul Steve Wynn wants to make sure Joe Francis never calls him a wannabe murderer ever again and is asking a judge to silence Francis.

Wynn filed a request for a permanent injunction against Francis, claiming the "Girls Gone Wild" honcho is likely to continue to make false and defamatory accusations if the court doesn't stop him.

Wynn says he's afraid Francis is a loose cannon if left unchecked -- and any accusations he makes against Wynn are likely to cause irreparable harm ... specifically accusations about Wynn trying to murder him.

You'll recall, Francis recently LOST after Wynn sued him for defamation. Wynn claimed Francis made bogus claims that Wynn threatened to have him murdered over a gambling debt.

Francis was already ordered to pay $40 million in damages in the lawsuit, but Wynn is worried that's not enough to stop him from continuing to run his mouth. more on this story
