What a ridiculous non sequitur. You were originally arguing "I don't see how this vindictiveness helps his daughter, which is a real issue no one seems to consider. Leave that family alone." But I guess it's hard to keep track of all the BS excuses you give this POS cheater.

If it was me, I'd have found out from him personally how he pulled off whatever he pulled off. Not asked a lawyer to do it.

But w/e, you wanna call the cops on him fine, but I think the very limited resources are better used in a case where you have evidence and if you win, you're not putting a kid in foster care.

I hope when the statute of limitations is up he will publicly explain how he did it. Yeah, I know I'm dreaming.

I really don't understand the foster kid angle... It is completely irrelevant to holding a cheater responsible for their actions. Plus, the kid might be better off in foster care than growing up with a con man dad who's likely going to turn them into one as well.

Postle's legal team dropped him as a client, and the good guy lawyers are saying the most likely reason is for non-payment.

It's pretty obvious. The scummy dude who worked there and went out of his way to not conduct a thorough investigation had access to the live stream was feeding him the hole cards.

It looks like counsel’s motion to withdraw was granted last week and Postle did not show up. Also, the SLAPP motion will be heard mid February.

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

It seems like he couldn't get anyone to take it on a contingency basis so sued with his own money. Filing the suit may not have cost all that much, but he realized it would cost hundreds of thousands eventually. He probably didn't run out of money as such, but didn't have or want to spend what it would take to go through with it.

Poker Fraud Alert and Veronica presumably feel strongly about this and that is why they filed the SLAPP motions. It might be difficult for Postle if he isn't represented in those cases.

There's no way he's not overwhelmed by paranoia right now, especially with what's going on in the real world as the backdrop.

It's not fair that Mike cheated in televised poker and is now facing the consequences of that. IMO Justin hasn't faced enough consequences yet for his involvement.

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

Or maybe he's just not playing live because we are in the middle of a pandemic. Or maybe he is playing live but without anyone knowing since he's wearing a mask.

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

FWIW, I probably wouldn’t recognize him without a mask. No chance if he’s wearing one. And I would be shocked if any of the people I played with pre-pandemic even had any idea who he was. And I highly doubt that changes unless he makes it to 60 minutes or 20/20.

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

Being a public figure in the poker community is highly unlikely to meet the standard the courts require to be a public figure under the law. A few youtube videos ain't gonna cut it. You gotta be in the msm really, or some kind of national media.

Postle was a public figure? Not to me. **** I can't even remember the number two guy in chess ... some local poker player rates as a personality?

You keep saying that but ignore the law on the issue. Where do you get your claim that you have to be in a national media to be a public figure? Just making it up? Also, this is a lawsuit in Sacramento county, not national media.
A live streamed cheating scandal at a major casino is most definitely a limited public issue.

took these excerpts on a decent summary of defamation law here http://www.dmlp.org/legal-guide/cali...defamation-law

. For example, the following persons have been considered public figures in California:

A former City Attorney who also represented the city's redevelopment agency;

A licensed clinical psychologist whose so-called “Nude Marathon” in group therapy is a means of helping people to shed their psychological inhibitions by the removal of their clothes;

An author and television personality;

The founder of a Church that has a program for the rehabilitation of drug addicts;

An associate of Howard Hughes, a famous aviator, movie producer, and billionaire, from approximately 1956 to 1970 who functioned as an "alter ego" and "personal representative" of Mr. Hughes;

A real-estate developer who was interested in building a housing development near a toxic chemical plant; and

A "prominent and outspoken feminist author" and anti-pornography advocate.
Limited-Purpose Public Figures

A limited-purpose public figure is a person who voluntarily injects herself or is drawn into a particular public controversy. It is not necessary to show that she actually achieves prominence in public debate; her attempts to thrust herself in front of the public is sufficient. Copp v. Paxton, 52 Cal.Rptr.2d 831, 844 (Cal. Ct. App. 1996). As with all limited-purpose public figures, the alleged defamation must be relevant to the plaintiff's voluntary participation in the public controversy (if the issue requires expertise or specialized knowledge, the plaintiff's credentials as an expert would be relevant).

In California, the following persons have been considered limited-purpose public figures:

The president of two corporations located in a California village that opposed the rezoning of property adjacent to his property. Kaufman v. Fidelity Fed. Sav. & Loan Ass'n, 189 Cal.Rptr. 818 (Cal. Ct. App. 1983);
An individual who publicly claimed to be an expert in earthquake safety and a veteran in earthquake rescue operations. Copp v. Paxton, 52 Cal.Rptr.2d 831 (Cal. Ct. App. 1996).
