Section 1983 Complaint against Foxwoods over in Mini-Baccharat “Edge Sorting” (UPDATED 5-25-16)

Here are the materials so far in Sun v. Mashantucket Pequot Gaming Enterprise (D. Conn.):

1 Complaint

1-2 Exhibit

Here is an excerpt from the complaint:

On or about December 24, 2011, plaintiff Cheung Yin Sun, along with two other playing partners, plaintiffs Long Mei Fang and Zong Yang Lei, deposited approximately $1.6 million dollars in shared front money with defendant Foxwoods Resorts Casino in order to play Mini-Baccarat (Exhibit A, 1). Plaintiffs won approximately $1.148 million in chips that evening while playing Mini-Baccarat on the graveyard shift. Plaintiffs won the $1.148 million honestly by using an advantage play strategy known as “edge sorting,” which will be described in more detail below. However defendants Foxwoods and Foxwoods Management refused to redeem the chips/winnings because they accused plaintiffs of cheating.

Updated materials:

22 Connecticut Motion to Dismiss

31-1 Pequot Motion to Dismiss

Docket entry 37:

ORDER granting 31 Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Jurisdiction; granting 20 Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings. The Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings (doc. no. [22] ) and Motion to Dismiss (doc. no. 31 ) are both granted absent objection because the plaintiffs have failed to take the necessary steps to establish the court’s personal jurisdiction as to any of the defendants. Accordingly the case is dismissed. SO ORDERED by Judge Janet C. Hall on 5/29/2015. (Lewis, D) (Entered: 06/01/2015)
