Attorney says state law requires casino to return gambler’s losses

Who says you can eat your cake and have it, too?

Attorney Frank A. Cusumano, that’s who.

Cusumano has sued MotorCity Casino on behalf of a client, Italo Mario Parise, who has lost more than $600,000 over the last 10 years at the casino’s slot machines, card games and gaming tables, according to a report in The Detroit News.

According to Cusumano, a little-known state law still on the books, MCL 600.2939, requires the casino to give Parise back the money he lost.

Cusumano, who says the suit is the first of its kind in Michigan, chatted with WJR’s Paul W. Smith yesterday morning about Parise’s claim. Audio from WJR available here.

Cusumano’s Web site now features a page proclaiming “Sue The Casinos And Recover Your Losses – No Fee Unless You Recover.” The page includes a copy of the pleadings filed in Parise’s case.
