Sunset Station’s false imprisonment of two “good casino customers”

By LVBear | October 2, 2015

Sunset Station (from its website)

The below information was posted on Green Chip. I copied the post verbatim.

This case, a couple of years old, was recently brought back to my attention. I think it’s of sufficient general interest to post it here instead of on Law and Taxes because it is illustrative of the incompetence and lack of integrity that we potentially face every day in our interactions with casino personnel. The two documents linked below are the best brief summaries of the entire case; they point out the many blunders and worse, the inconsistencies of the accounts of the incident by various employees involved, each apparently trying to blame someone else for what was done to the two patrons. As plaintiffs’ attorneys wrote, “This is a case about a failure to take responsibility.”

After dragging the case out until just before jury trial, Sunset Station eventually privately settled with the two “good casino customers” involved (there is no indication that they were advantage players). In my opinion, reasonable management would have settled to the victims’ satisfaction long before a lawsuit had to be filed. My guess is that the two victims would have settled for less than they eventually received. Sunset Station would also have saved attorney fees.

I like the plaintiffs’ attorneys naming in the lawsuit as an individual defendant the worst offender and apparent enabler of the mess that transpired, Shift Manager Vinny Gilvarry. Though Mr. Gilvarry tried to place the blame on others, it is good that such misbehavior and apparent lack of candor in legal proceedings is brought into the public eye. Because this is all public record, it should act as a cautionary note should any other casino want to hire this individual in the future, and possibly create liability for negligent hiring should he become involved in a similar incident.

Gilvarry points the finger at his supervisor, Alida Del Fonte for the arrest.(*) See Exh. D, Depo. of Gilvarry, 3l:6-11. Conversely, security shift supervisor David Clark and security officer Joseph Emerson point the finger at surveillance agent Jose Gonzales and Gilvarry. See Exh. G, Security Report, l; Exh. F, Depo. of Clark, 22:18-23:8; Exh. G, Security Report, Emerson Voluntary Statement. In an attempt to further shift blame, Gonzales points the finger at Gilvarry. See Exh. E, Surveillance Report, l.

(*) The Court will note that despite the fact that Gilvarry denies ordering the custody, Defendants admit in their motion for summary judgment that he ordered the detention. See Def. Mtn,4-2l-23.

Of all the incompetence, two things struck me as particularly loathsome and ridiculous: (1) Mr. Vilgarry telling the patrons, “You are under arrest” but later lying about his involvement, and (2) after Sunset Station realized its mistake and that no crime had been committed, continuing to falsely imprison the victims and subsequently trespassing them. Why would Sunset Station want to trespass these folks?

The first link below is an Opposition filed by plaintiff’s attorneys to a Motion for Summary Judgment filed by Sunset’s and Gilvarry’s attorneys. (The motion was denied by the Court.) The second link is a report on the incident by the plaintiffs’ expert.
