Gambling Suit

Because you can always blame someone:

A Southern California man has sued MGM Mirage for preying on his gambling addiction and inducing him to borrow and lose millions of dollars at its Las Vegas casinos.

The suit was filed on Monday in a Los Angeles U.S. District Court by Shibley Horaney, a resident of Newport Beach, California, who says that since 1995 he has lost and paid back about $4 million on credit provided to him by the MGM Grand and $1 million on credit from The Mirage casino.

In 2003, he borrowed and lost another $475,000, which the casinos are still seeking to collect.

--Suits like this make me ashamed I'm a lawyer. Actually, it makes me want to beat up the guy that actually took this case for giving the rest of us a bad name.

You Said

I concur. The lawyer should meet my friends Vinny and Guido for a long talk on proper behavior.

Same situation down in Evansville at the Aztar, though obviously on a smaller scale. Hit national news last year. I believe the judge told him to beat it . . .

i know the jerk. not only has he gambled for 50 years and lost most of the time. he is still gambling at other casinos as we speak. he has never taken responsiblity for anything that he has done. he has millions and never has worried about losing them. insurance business makes lots of money. i know he is my father's brother.
