Down and out in Motown: Gambler’s suit against casino comes up snake eyes

Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Michael Sapala has dealt a busted straight to a Macomb County gambler trying to recoup his losses with a lawsuit against MotorCity Casino.

“This morning, … Sapala denied a motion by [Italo] Parise to order the Detroit casino to repay him $673,854 in gambling losses,” reports The Detroit News.

Sapala said the 1961 law cited by Parise’s lawyer allows people to collect their gambling losses only in cases of illegal gambling.

“This is a very easy, simple and straightforward decision: It is the public policy of the state — whether you agree with it or not — that casino gambling is legal,” Sapala told attorney Frank Cusumano Jr. in court Friday.

Attorney Deborah Brower, who represents the casino, is asking the judge to impose sanctions on Cusumano for filing what she calls a “frivolous” case.

Cusumano is considering an appeal.

Parise racked up his losses at MotorCity over the last 10 years.
