Supreme Court to hear gambler's suit

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Supreme Court will hear arguments this week on whether an Ohio River casino should have allowed a compulsive gambler to play and lose $125,000 in a single night.

The high court will hear the appeal Thursday of a state appeals court decision that Jenny Kephart of Nashville, Tenn., failed to take advantage of programs that allow compulsive gamblers to have themselves banned from casinos.

Kephart countersued Caesars Indiana in 2007 after the Ohio River casino near Louisville, Ky., sued her to recover $125,000 that she had lost in a single night of gambling in 2006. The casino is now Horseshoe Southern Indiana.

Kephart said the casino enticed her to gamble with free meals and rooms and money on credit.
