Column: Easier to Win in Court than with State Police

Columnist writes, in the case of two men who thought they won big at a New Orleans slot machine in 2000, it's easier to win in court than with State Police. Gill explains that a slot machine showed a $1.3 million jackpot win, but casino officials said the machine malfunctioned. State Police, which regulates gambling in Louisiana and is subsidized by casinos, investigated and found that the win was void. The appeal court agreed with the jury's finding that the win was valid. Gill says "(I)t is obviously easier to hit the jackpot with an Orleans Parish jury than with State Police." James Gill, New Orleans Times-Picayune 03/30/2006 Read Article: New Orleans Times-Picayune
