The casino has also been named in a lawsuit claiming its executives, who are former employees of the Isle Casino Biloxi, stole confidential information from the Isle and brought it with them to Margaritaville.
“I think Margaritaville and Margaritaville investors are going to have to answer to us in millions of dollars in damages,” general counsel for Landry’s Golden Nugget Steven Scheinthal said. Landry’s purchased the Isle Casino Biloxi in November 2012.
According to the lawsuit, the Isle’s former general manager stole confidential information “such as play history, play frequency, betting habits and other information valuable to a casino operator.”
Michael Cavanaugh, Margaritaville’s attorney, says the Isle’s claims are groundless and they were simply upset over losing their former employee.
