Lawyers representing MGM Resorts International, Caesars Entertainment Inc., Wynn Resorts Holdings, Treasure Island and Cendyn Group, the company behind the revenue management platform Rainmaker, said in a court filing on March 27 that the plaintiffs, two tourists, did not show any direct evidence that using the platform led to price collusion.

The attorneys did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
