Wheeler called Lederer’s presence a “safety issue,” perhaps for Lederer himself.
When Lederer first returned to the tables, there were reports that Bellagio and Aria received death threat phone calls after he arrived to play.
Both casinos planted security guards in front of their respective glass-encased high-stakes tables.
They don't seem to care that he ripped everybody off but it seems that if they can be made to think his physical safety is at risk by being there, they might ban him for that.
Making death threats is a crime so I'm not advocating anybody call Aria and make a credible threat they're going to kill him - but that would seem to be the type of angle that will be effective here, not players signing a petition based on ethics and morals.
