The Mohegan Sun is suing Eugene Melnyk for more than $900,000, saying he issued the American casino a series of bank drafts that were dishonoured by a bank.

The Ottawa Senators owner is alleged to have tried to pay the casino five bank drafts totalling $900,000 between March 17, 2017 and March 19, 2017.

When reached for comment, Melnyk's lawyer stated that "As it is in litigation at this point we cannot comment other than to say we expect a swift result."
