Court Rules in Favor of Our Client’s Tip Pool Rules


Judge Kleinberg recently ruled after two weeks of trial that our client was within its legal rights to require dealers to share tips with employees who serve the casino’s patrons.   Discharging the jury and finding in favor of Sutter’s Place, Inc. which operates as Bay 101 Casino, the judge ruled in Haim Avidor v. Sutter’s Place Inc. (No. 1-07-CV-080689) that the dealers did not prove they had any interest in the money contributed to the tip pool and found that the amount they were required to contribute was fair.
