Updates on Borgata vs Ivey
Wednesday April 16,2014 : BORGATA VS. IVEY LATEST (Update)
US judge sends filing back for more detail.
Borgata's edge sorting cheating litigation against international poker ace Phil Ivey has been sent back to the company by U.S. District Court Judge Noel Hillman because it does not adequately specify the state domiciles of Ivey and his alleged accomplice, Cheng Yin Sun.
Meanwhile, the respected online gambling legal expert, Professor I.Nelson Rose of Whittier Law School, has expressed doubts about the validity of the case against Ivey, telling the information site Gambling9111 that edge sorting has been around for decades, but that it is the casino's responsibility to ensure that there are no readable markings on the backs of cards.
"Ivey used information available to all players," the law expert said. "By definition that was not cheating."
