The movie star and poker player Tobey Maguire (best known from the Spider-Man movies) has been sued for $300,000 in a suit surrounding a multi-million dollar, illegal poker game. The suit was was filed in USA Bankruptcy Court in Los Angeles in March.

Celebs like Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon also played in these illegal poker games, however, their names are not mentioned in the suit. The reason for this is that the people investigating the case could re-create the history of numerous transactions that have been made, and Maguire's name has appeared there.

The games were "exclusive events", by invitation only, and there was regulars consisting of wealthy celebrities, businessmen, entrepreneurs etc. According to the lawsuit, Maguire won more than $300,000 from Brad Ruderman, a Beverly Hills hedge fund manger. Such games are illegal in California, and Maguire is said to have hired an attorney to fight the suit.

What a load of Bu**SHIT. 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......

GL to all mobsters...................

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? Tongue

Man , this guys already have too much money.
Why do they need to slip down like that for a nickel?
Greed for Dollar is so Aww crap! .
 crusher00718/07/2011 09:14:27 GMT

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
