In the News: A woman recently filed a lawsuit against several Atlantic County casinos, claiming they owe her $20 million in damages for failing to advise her not to gamble anymore. The woman had been a successful lawyer in New York before she started coming to the casinos to unwind from her stressful workweeks. During the height of her gambling addiction, she would stay at the blackjack tables for five days straight living off orange juice and candy bars. Her lawsuit claims that the named Atlantic County casinos were under a duty to spot her problem and advise that she list herself on the voluntary "Do-Not-Serve" lists that the casinos provide. During her addiction, the woman lost over $1 million, her law practice, and her license to practice law.
