Caesars' N.J. License at Issue

From Associated Press

Caesars Hotel & Casino's gaming license should be temporarily suspended because it removed black and female employees from a table to please a big-spending customer, officials say.

"The conduct was repugnant," said state Division of Gaming Enforcement Director Anthony Parrillo on Thursday. "I think this will show the length they will go to cater to a high roller."

Trump Plaza was facing similar discrimination charges, a newspaper reported Friday.

On Wednesday, the Division of Gaming Enforcement recommended that Caesar's casino be shut down.

An administrative law judge ruled in August that Caesars "did not abide by its guarantee of equal employment opportunity for all."

The judge ordered the casino to pay $15,600 in fines--the amount the high roller lost at the gaming tables.
