A woman tried to challenge her exclusion from The Star. According to a new report, the legal claim of the banned gambler was dismissed because she lost more than $600,000 at the casino.
There is a court case about banned gamblers winning back money
According to a new report from the Associated Press, Kim Nguyen, a beauty therapist from Fairfield East, was banned from working in Australia by The Star Sydney in April of last year. Initially, she did not challenge the decision of the casino. The decision was justified by family issues and COVID-19.
The gambler went to court because the ban prevented her from starting a job as a travel host at the Star. This resulted in a claim being filed with the Supreme Court of New South Wales. The woman said she was banned from the casino because she didn’t have a reason. According to the latest report, she accused the casino of making misleading statements to the police. She wanted to win back a large amount of money she lost at the casino, as well as having remaining credit from her membership.
Legislation prohibits the Court from granting relief in relation to an exclusion order. Justice Harrison was an associate justice.
The case was dismissed by the court on Monday, in an unfortunate turn of events. She was ordered to pay The Star’s costs in relation to the legal claim. Associate Justice Harrison said that there was not a viable cause of action.
Leadership changes were recently completed by The Star
The new CEO of The Star Sydney was appointed by Star Entertainment. Scott Wharton took over the position after another leadership change at Star Entertainment. Robert Cooke, the former CEO of the Tatts Group, took the position of CEO and managing director at Star Entertainment after the change. He will be reporting directly to Cooke now that Wharton is in charge of The Star Sydney.
The Commonwealth Bank of Australia was led by Wharton before he joined The Star. He worked for the Commonwealth Bank of Australia for six years as a group executive for program delivery and executive general manager. Each of the positions was held by Wharton for three years. As a part of the organization, he helped lead strategic transformations and programs that helped the bank improve its structure.
