Indiana Court of Appeals Visits Anderson on Thursday

So reports The Indiana Lawyer. Arguments in gambling case Thursday:

"The Indiana Court of Appeals hits the road Thursday to hear arguments at Anderson University in a case involving a compulsive gambler and what duty the casino had to prevent her from gambling.

In Caesars Riverboat Casino LLC v. Genevieve M. Kephart, No. 31A01-0711-CV-530, Caesars Riverboat Casino sued Genevieve Kephart to recover $125,000 after the six counterchecks she wrote to the casino were returned for insufficient funds. Kephart filed a counterclaim alleging the casino knew she suffered from compulsive gambling disorder and owed her a duty to refrain from enticing her to visit the casino."
