According to ESPN, Phil Ivey's attorneys filed a countersuit on Wednesday against Borgata, claiming that the casino had destroyed the decks of cards used when Phil Ivey won nearly $10 million playing Baccarat in 2012 while using a controversial technique called edge sorting. Borgata filed a law suit in April after learning that Ivey lost the case (worth about $12 million) against Crockfords Casino in London.
The the countersuit says: "Plaintiff Borgata had a duty of care at all times relevant hereto due and owing to the defendants, to maintain, sequester and preserve the precise playing cards utilized by the plaintiff in each of the casino games patronized by the defendants from April through July of 2012. Plaintiff Borgata knew that those playing cards were critically material to Ivey and Sun's defense, and knew further that destruction of those playing cards would render the defendants irrevocably prejudice in defending against plaintiff's claims and in securing judgment against the plaintiff."
