My understanding is he has a wife and two kids and this is only a civil case. What would he gain by leaving the USA?

IMO they are probably not much different than people who sat on juries in the past but IANAL.

The article above states

But the story did not break out easily, even after Brill signalled some officials in the Stones
So, who in Stones management besides Justin did Veronica talk to about her concerns?

Re: Mike Postle cheating allegations (FAQ in first post)

Its 100% clear the players were cheated.
Even though its obvious to us, its complicated and enough doubt could be shed to cloud the issues (classic defense lawyer stuff)

I think the best outcome is Kings Casinos settles, probably with no admission of fault on their part.
I know it will seem MP and JK will have "won"

Is 100 grand worth your entire reputation being smashed forever.

Not only that when you scam people, you don't know who they are and what they will do in the future.
They will both have to look over their shoulders for a long long time.

As an example say one or either applies for a job somewhere.

People who have been scammed might feel the right to inform their new employers of the relevant online news articles.

Looks like a mistake by the author of the article. I'm not saying you are implying this, but Veronica didn't do anything wrong by going only to Justin (if that's what she did). The appropriate parties at Stones was surely aware when they engaged their lawyer to conduct their "investigation."

The article also refers to JFK as the "former tournament director at Stones" - can anyone confirm whether he is still employed there?

There have been no criminal charges or investigations over this? Just a civil lawsuit? WTF is the California gaming commission doing?

Has there been any damage to Stones? Is the poker room full?

Justin is former tournament director, but now working at Stones on the 12 AM to 8 AM shift or something like that.

Why hasn't Stones sued both the villains?

That would be tantamount to admitting cheating took place while they are still a defendant in a civil lawsuit. Admitting their own employee took part in the scam is not a good look when their investigation found that no cheating occurred.

Because neither has much money and Stones does. Plus Stones doesn't want to admit anything went wrong while it is being sued.

JFK is working the night shift, because they don't want to admit there was a problem. Once the lawsuit is settled, JFK will likely be laid off.

Any proof that there ever was an "investigation"?
That it wasn't just JK waving his hands and pronouncing Postle pure as the driven snow?

They involved an attorney that Stones had used before. It would be pretty bad for them if JK could initiate that and announce the results and upper management wasn't aware/involved.

I know he was brought in for the latest investigation after everything had hit the fan.
I didn't realize that he had been brought in for the first investigation.

Was just going by memory, so I could be wrong, but I thought that was one of the criticisms of their "independent" investigation -- that it was done by their own lawyer.

Was there ever a "first" investigation, I know JFK told Veronica it had been investigated, but was he lying, as I haven't seen any evidence that any investigation had taken place, and think he was just saying that to try to reassure her her fears were unfounded.

They announced it on their own Twitter feed, so if JFK lied, it seems Stones as a whole was in on the lie. If JFK acted on his own by lying about the investigation and tweeting about it from the official Stones Live Poker Twitter account without Stones management being aware, shame on them.

unless he is sneaking in the back door and working in some back office that nobody is aware of, the people who play there, who have talked to the staff, say that he is not working there (being on staff is a different issue). where did you hear this?
