Stones Gambling Hall settles poker lawsuit; lawyer says no cheating by casino found

Nearly a year after an alleged cheating scheme at Stones Gambling Hall in Citrus Heights rocked the poker world and spawned a $30 million lawsuit, the case has been settled for an undisclosed amount and lawyers in the case agree Stones was not involved in any cheating.

“A number of my clients chose to settle the case with the casino,” attorney Maurice “Mac” VerStandig said in a telephone interview Monday. “It’s an amicable settlement that we’re happy to enter into.”

The terms of the settlement were not disclosed, although a Stones source said the payment amount is “nominal” and being made to “show good will.”
