What a load of Bu**S**T. I cannot believe what you are puting up with over there. Is it a case of the US tax man didn't get his cut so lets sue? I know that the US is the land of the free, but this is taking it. What can you do with your own money? Does anyone care that Toby won or lost loads of money - I dont!!!
I know you are our American cousins, but please do something about your laws, Is it because you have different laws for different states? I dont understand - Please explain......

Its an interesting thing. No one can play private poker games at home in California? Maybe there was one guy who lost more than we intended and decide to "open the mouth" outside and created all this troubles. Celebrities are really crazy, how far can they take the madness?

This is BS,obviously some one was a sorry loser and opened there big mouth,I believe a private game,whould be PRVATE!,if you cant afford to lose your $$,then dont play. I guess the person who complained,probably thought htis was a good way to get his/her $ back by exposing their poker game wince they were celebrities. Hope SPIDERMAN wins this lawsuit!! lol
