Gambler loses lawsuit against MotorCity Casino

Italo Parise, the Macomb County man who sued MotorCity Casino to recover his gambling losses, has lost again. This time in court.
This morning, Wayne Circuit Court Judge Michael Sapala denied a motion by Parise to order the Detroit casino to repay him $673,854 in gambling losses.
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.
