Prisoner Unsuccessfully Tries To Sue Newspaper For Not Publishing Gambling Odds

Tags: Pennsylvania, prisoner.
Posted on 03 December 2015 by "T".

A 60-year-old Pennsylvania prisoner's lawsuit against a newspaper company that apparently stopped publishing Las Vegas gambling odds got thrown out by the state court. This move actually had caused more trouble for him, since he unwittingly made it known for everyone about his alleged illegal gambling operations in prison.

The prisoner, named Alton Brown, claimed a breach of contract when newspaper company USA Today discontinued printing that particular section of the paper shortly after he had subscribed, as reported by Pennlive.com.

Mr. Brown's lawsuit, which was considered to be an "utterly frivolous" one by a state Superior Court panel, states that he blamed USA Today's former publisher and president Larry Kramer for the decision to discontinue publishing gambling data, which includes sporting events and Las Vegas betting odds. This discontinuation apparently ruined Mr. Brown, as he needed the information in order to run his bookmaking operation in prison.

Mr. Brown has a police record of robbery, assault and theft convictions. He also had an 18-year history of filing baseless and ridiculous complaints from behind bars.

It is not clear if Mr. Brown got any punishment for running a gambling operation in prison, which is prohibited by the state Department of Corrections.
According to the advocate for casino operators, suppliers and allies in the gaming industry, American Gaming Association (AGA), Americans actually illegally bet at least $140 billion on sports every year.

hmmm... "According to the advocate for casino operators, suppliers and allies in the gaming industry, American Gaming Association (AGA), Americans actually illegally bet at least $140 billion on sports every year" so dudes shell out $140 billion a year and no one notice this... but when a few grandmas organise a weekly mahjong tournament with $4 at stake police comes to uncover their illegal gambling operations right away? cool.

Mr. Brown had an 18-year history of filing baseless and ridiculous complaints from behind bars. lmfao... true gangster

Yeah. It's one thing to take this to court and another to come up with his 'own' odds. That would require some real brain.
