Maryland Live Casino is suing MGM

The cause of the dispute between Maryland Live Casino and MGM Resorts International is the disclosure of a list of high-rollers.

US.- The Maryland Live Casino is contending several MGM employees who used to work for Maryland Live, for allegedly providing lists of at least 3,000 high rollers to MGM, which is about to open a casino soon at National Harbor.

Maryland Live argues that the former employees violated confidentiality and noncompete agreements. The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Baltimore.

On its part, MGM is calling the lawsuit “baseless” and claims that Maryland Live is threatening former employees with “unenforceable non-compete agreements.”

According to the lawsuit, after employees were discovered sharing lists they signed documents stating they had destroyed or returned all copies of the lists to Maryland Live. Then, the employees took jobs with MGM.
