Poker Champ Berman Stakes Claim In Ohio Casinos

During last year's campaign pushing a single Ohio casino in Clinton County, Berman and Penn National were bitter rivals.

Berman and his partners in the effort to bring a casino to Clinton County in southwest Ohio sued Penn National for allegedly making false and defamatory statements, which including information about Berman's involvement in the bankruptcy of a Las Vegas casino in 1996. Berman and his partners, MyOhioNow co-founders Rick Lertzman and Brad Pressman, questioned in a news release whether Penn National met the ethical standards to hold a gaming license.

The next day, Penn National and its No on 6 Committee shot back with a countersuit, accusing Berman, Lertzman and Pressman of defamation, libel, slander, deceptive trade practices, false advertising and abuse of the legal process.

Court records show both lawsuits were dismissed last spring.
