But they have to keep it in Nevada


Quote:
Sadri, a California resident, incurred debts totaling $22,000 over a two-day period in 1991 while gambling at Caesar's Tahoe casino in Nevada. On January 13 and 14 he wrote the casino two personal checks for $2,000 and $10,000. On January 14 he executed two memoranda of indebtedness for $5,000 each. In exchange for the checks and memoranda, Sadri received chips, which he lost playing the game of baccarat. Sadri subsequently stopped payment on the checks and memoranda, which were drawn on his account at a Redwood City bank.

Caesar's Tahoe did not, however, seek a judgment in Nevada on Sadri's debts. Instead, the casino assigned its claims to MCS (Metropolitan Creditors Service of Sacramento) for collection, and MCS sued Sadri in California, filing a complaint in municipal court in San Mateo County.

The municipal court rendered judgment for Sadri, ruling that under established public policy his gambling debts were unenforceable in California.

What happens in Tahoe, stays... well, I guess some cases might end up at the Supreme Court in Carson City.

We have gone from investigating the crime of the century to arguing about who pays the attorneys the were complete failures at uncovering the crime of the century.

I'm pretty sure you are being facetious / trolling with your 'crime of the century' comments but as it played out the details of the case will not be heard so there will never be any trial or judgement on whether he is guilty or not. So an enforced bankruptcy would be a little bit of karma

Why? The lawyers get some cash? Postle will be a celebrity, like OJ, and play anywhere he wants?

Those cases are extremely difficult to prosecute and generally involve very large sums of $$.

Just because a case could be prosecuted doesn't mean that it would or should (based on the resources the prosecutors will have to use and chances of winning). Making a layperson serving as a juror understand complex ideas with which they have no experience is difficult. Many prosecutions have been lost because jurors didn't understand the evidence or just didn't like the witness. O.J. prosecution is a classic case of these problems - DNA was not well understood at the time and the prosecution did not present that evidence well at all. I also prosecuted DNA cases in the early days and it was an uphill battle sometimes.

This is one reason why I said early on in the thread that I found it highly unlikely that this case would end up in criminal court.
Enjoyed your posts here very informative and insightful, thanks.

Not an expert but I thought the issue with DNA in the Simpson case was chain of custody, not technological intelligence of the jurors, am I remembering this wrong?

I would take issue with comparing insider trading evidence with poker hand evidence. Are you suggesting that the evidence of insider trading is not mathematically on a much higher level than the few hands of evidence availabe here?

Said different, with so few hands, would a case with the same number of suspect trades be pursued if the money were big enough otherwise?

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

Postle did this to himself.

There was no reason to file the lawsuit.

It was over.

(I am confused why the attorney who filed the lawsuit isn't culpable as well under the SLAPP law)

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

I'm not sure how I'm supposed to go through life ending up in a grave without getting closure on wether Kuraitis was in on it or if he's just the dumbest man alive. I really hate that I may very well never know the answer

Postle helped drag it out with his lawsuits.
If he was smart he would have let the whole thing blow over.
He could have kept the money and moved on to his next "venture"?
This story reminds me of Floyd Landis who sued everyone to prove his innocence , lost all his money and then admitted he did it after all.

If Postle would have just used God mode 25-50% of the time he could have still been printing money right now.

There will be people watching Joey Ingram's videos in 2026..... it's a story that will get told for a long time! And as others have pointed out is still ongoing mostly because of Postles own doing

Mike Postle

Is Postle still living off his Stones Gambling Hall ill gotten gains ?

Has anyone in this thread had first or second hand contact with Postle in the last 18 months who could tell us what Postle is up to lately?

Does Postle have a job ?

Does Postle's alleged partner in crime (Justin Kuraitis) have a job ?

Postle could easily get a job in retail or a restaurant or a warehouse or one of the industries with a red hot labor market. I guess his position is that "I'm a professional poker player and now I can't make a living because I can't play poker anymore." He's basically saying "My ego is too big to move down in stakes to a real job." Not sure how the courts will view that, but he did claim in a previous filing that he is essentially busto and has no income and can't pay the money he owes which is why they had to pursue involuntary bankruptcy.

Any updates on this since? It says he was supposed to file a response four days ago on the 15th. Then there's a conference on the 26th.
