Mac VerStandig Attorney Claims Both Sides Agree to Settlement – Veteran gambling attorney Mac VerStandig, who represents 88 plaintiffs, filed a third request for an extension of the amended complaint on August 5. In the submission, VerStandig stated that a settlement had been reached, but both parties need more time to work out the details.
The original complaint was issued from US District Court in the Eastern District of California by Judge William B. Shubb in June.
“The advisor to the parties has reached an agreement on the main terms of settlement of this case, but it takes additional time to complete the settlement,” wrote VerStandig in the filing.
VerStandig also notes that since this case is not a class action lawsuit, it will take more time. Lawyers must communicate with the 88 claimants individually and verify that they agree to the terms of settlement.
Postle was accused of cheating in a low-stakes live stream poker game at the Stones Gambling Hall in the Sacramento area. Based on his unorthodox gaming and consistent winning sessions that saw him win up to $ 300,000 on most $ 1- $ 3 and $ 2- $ 5 no-limit hold’em games, many in the poker community believe he has access to hole cards.
The allegations were originally exposed by former Stones employee Veronica Brill last fall. Some high stakes poker pros agree with Brill’s allegations that it is statistically unlikely that Postle will win that much money on that bet plus his on-camera play.
After Shubb dismissed the original case two months ago, VerStandig tweeted that the case is not dead yet and he will continue to exercise legal options before giving up. It appears that negotiations were taking place between the two sides as VerStandig began drafting the amended complaint.
The filing provides plaintiffs with up to September 11 to file an amended complaint. It is likely that the settlement requirements will be met by that time. You can read the entire archive by clicking on the image below.
