Foxwoods sued over dealer's comments

22 July 2008

CONNECTICUT -- As reported by the New York Postt: "A roulette worker at Foxwoods came up the big loser when he bet that nine women gathered around his table - including an NYPD sergeant, FBI special agent and a Long Island cop - couldn't understand the gross comments he was making about them in Spanish.

"It turned out the party also included Michelle Marigliano, a businesswoman who used to teach bilingual education and was able to comprende every disgusting word.

"After complaining, the women were invited into the high-rollers' lounge, given free drinks, a free breakfast and two free rooms for one night at the Connecticut facility. They were told at least one worker was fired.

"But the women are going for another spin of the wheel, hoping for a giant payoff in a lawsuit seeking $500,000 each.

"...Their lawyer, Arnold Kriss, says the emotional damage and dismissive attitude prompted the Nassau County Supreme Court action.

"In a twist, Foxwoods, which is owned by Pequot Indians, claims in legal papers it is immune to lawsuits in state court, and any legal actions must be filed in a tribal court."
