Poker in the Courts

by , Jul 30, 2007 | 11:09 am

Today’s a big day for poker in Dallas County. Sorta. Some cases from JB’s/Goodfellows are at the Dallas County Courthouse right now. I don’t have many details — perhaps some of the defendants can fill us in as their cases get postponed/settled/dismissed (or otherwise adjudicated, of course).

Perspective forthcoming …

UPDATE: All cases against players dismissed. Charges against dealers and room operators put on deferred adjudication … meaning if they can stay clear of running a poker room for 90 days, all problems will go away.

    […] And here are some more updates from the raids on Jackie’s, Ace High, Aces, and Good Fellows … comments that got posted on old posts that you might have missed.
