OJ Simpson's attorney threatens to sue Las Vegas Casino for $100M

Tags: Las Vegas, OJ Simpson, The Cosmopolitan.
Posted on Monday, January 22, 2018 by "T".

Remember the news back in November 2017 about OJ Simpson who just got out of prison but was banned from a Las Vegas Casino for being drunk and disruptive? Well, it turns out that the story is being contested by his legal team.

OJ Simpson's lawyer said that they are threatening to file a lawsuit for $100 million against the Cosmopolitan Casino, claiming that their casino staff "acted with malice and racial prejudice".

Contained in a letter sent to The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, OJ Simpson's lawyer Malcolm P. LaVergne said that the Cosmopolitan staff fraudulently proclaimed through national media that Simpson was banned on November 8 within the casino premises because he "was drunk, became disruptive at the Clique bar, was angry at hotel staff and glasses were broken at the bar." The letter also declared that staff neglected to reverse their ban after the police confirmed via surveillance footage that the staff made up a "false narrative".

The letter says that Cosmopolitan staff wanted to put Simpson in a bad light, in order to affect or damage his parole terms. The letter also stated that Simpson was "singled out amongst his non-African American friends and expelled him for a fake reason while he peacefully visited the Cosmopolitan property."

LaVergne claimed these horrible actions violated federal and state law. He asked for the preservation of evidence including protocols, policies, surveillance footage, lists of employees and visitors with felonies who were not banned, and other various documents.

The letter says Simpson could sue for at least $100 million.

Meanwhile, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas released a statement about these claims, "As a matter of company policy, it does not comment on potential litigation."

The amounts of money being talked about here is astronomical and i cannot see how they could possibly justify getting that much. I have been asked to leave a few establishments over the years for being drunk so i must be owed a fortune!!!

Read the whole story here, and it seems that police after watching the video cant confirm
claims.
Nit no matter what happened there, that amount seems extremely high.
There is no logic in such a demand. Ask a few k to get them, but this?
He should have asked to write the casino on his name.... Smile

this man is looking to earn extra money in a process with the respective casino. I do not know his personal life. OJ Simpson has money or not that's not important, the fact is he has a very bad character and that will make him lose in court in my opinion.

A lot I've been observing this will be that the giant is falling, or will be something temporary with abusive rake apolitica think that we will not see now and that is very lucky because hablidade has if leftovers come to partypoker

godoy, unfortunately you are not right here. Not every news story is about that some professional poker player leaves Pokerstars and joins Partypoker. OJ Simpson is not a poker pro, he is a man who spent lots of time in prison for a murder.

OJ would not be welcomed in many different places around America so it is not a surprise to me that this particular casino decided he is persona non grata as well. It is just casting a huge shadow on your business when he is there.

the amount of claims in America is certainly astronomical ..... a hundred million dollars for the fact that it was not allowed into the casino, it certainly is very cool .... but of course such a lot of money he will not get but maybe something he will be paid .... murderer who Not corrected but remained a criminal in the brain

I dont think what happens there, actually happens in another country with the lawsuits.
They trip inside a store and the go and sue the store.
And the store owners, watch out for such incidents.
Here, you trip in a store, and all you get is "you should be more careful next time" Smile

this OJ Simpson's is just a charlatan who wants money. I read here another news about him and is a scandalous man and aggressive. What claims to have from an offender, who made the punishment 9 years in jail for armed robbery? In my opinion he will not win anything in that court. He will lose the process.
