ok....my Roddy White thread has got me thinking about this are gambling debts enforceable? that, can you use the court to make someone pay I am a lawyer, and I don't know the answer to this, but i do know some background at common law, gambling debts were not enforceable as a matter of policy. I believe (but do not know) that Nevada was the first state to change that, by statute. since then, several states have started legal gaming, so, again, i don't know.....i suspect those states allow gaming entities (and maybe private people) to sue and enforce gambling debts Now, if you incur a credit card bill, say, by getting a cash advance, which you then gamble away, you are out of luck....the credit card company can & will take you to court and win if you don't pay....and, you can not get out of the debt by saying it was for gambling....their arbitrator would laugh at you and, as a matter of interest...in the Roddy White case....even if the parties lived where the fan had a right to sue White, the fan would still lose...and for the reason i suggested in the Roddy White thread...there was no mutuality of contract...the fan did not promise to do anything in return for White's promise but anyway, i am curious, anybody with knowledge of how their own states work? any lawyers who would like to correct me? anybody?
