Ind. Decisions - Card counters aka as "Advantage Gamblers"

Recalling the Sept. 30, 2010 case of Thomas P. Donovan v. Grant Victoria Casino & Resort, L.P., where in a 13-page, 3-1-0 opinion, our Indiana Court held that casinos may exclude card counters, the 9th Circuit ruled yesterday in a false arrest and defamation suit brought by earlier-banished professional gambler Laurie Tsao against Caesars Palace. Pamela A. MacLean writes in the blog Trial Insider:

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the police arrest of Laurie Tsao for trespass after her banishment as an “advantage gambler,” otherwise known as card-counters. The court said her civil rights suit was properly dismissed.
