The most-asked question in the 2+2 Thread and among poker players is: If and what legal consequences the cheating scandal has for Mike Postle?
“I couldn’t arrest Mike Postle even if I wanted to“
Thanks to the poker players‘ attorney Mac Verstanding and The Rake host Jamie Kerstetter, who asked that question on the podcast, we are finally able to provide an answer!
Mac Verstanding explains:
„In the United States the only way to go to jail is for either the state where you live or the federal government to bring criminal charges against you. Someone has to go to the government saying I’ve been wronged can you please bring a criminal case against so and so and it’s gotta be a government employed prosecutor, who brings that case, not a private attorney. Whether or not anyone goes to jail here will have very little to do with the lawsuit we are managing and that’s not my choice. I couldn’t arrest Mike Postle even if I wanted to.“
Mike Postle case is a civil case not a criminal case
To sum up what Mac Verstandig means is, that they have filed a civil suit, not a criminal suit. A criminal suit can only be filed by a government prosecutor, not by a private attorney.
He then goes into more detail what the 30 Million Dollar Lawsuit is about:
“We are seeking justice in the most American of ways, which is an economic way. The vast majority of civil lawsuits are for money. We are seeking to have Mr. Postle, Stones, Mr. Kuraitis, and John Does – whoever they may turn out to be – repay our clients for the money they lost at the tables and punitive damages, which is the amount of money meant to punish the casino as well as Mr. Kuraitis and Mr. Postle for letting this to happen.”
76 poker players have now joined the Mike Postle lawsuit
Usually a civil suit is brought by one person against another person, while in the Mike Postle lawsuit there are a total of 76 poker players, who seek compensation for being cheated.
Mac Verstandig also revealed that new and more players such as Marle Cordeiro have also joined the lawsuit.
