Man Battles Caesars Indiana Over Money - Thursday 1st of June 2006

INDIANA – As reported by the Louisville, Kentucky Courier-Journal: "A developer from Corbin, Ky., who said he has lost at least $500,000 over the years at the Caesars Indiana casino has gone to court to prevent the riverboat from getting even more of his money.

"His claim: That he was drunk when he accepted $75,000 in credit from the casino and then lost it all in a single night.

"…The legal maneuvering began last October when the casino, which is in Harrison County, Ind., near Louisville, sued Vance for failing to repay the $75,000. Last month Vance fired back, taking an approach that may be unprecedented in Indiana.

"In his countersuit filed in Harrison Circuit Court, Vance, 64, maintains that he was visibly drunk and was 'induced' by Caesars employees to take several credit advances during a night of gambling. Therefore, his suit claims, the casino is responsible for his losses.

"For its part, Caesars wants much more than the $75,000 Vance lost. It's seeking treble damages — $225,000 — plus 18 percent interest, court costs and legal fees. The casino's lawyers also have asked a judge to dismiss Vance's counterclaim…"
