Gambler Sues GVR for Getting 86'd

A professional gambler has filed suit against Green Valley Ranch Station Casino. Joseph Pane is claiming that he has been banned from other casinos and gambling tournaments because he was depicted as a cheat on a reality show profiling the Henderson property.

Joseph Pane -- a retired Brooklyn cop who travels the country playing blackjack tournaments -- filed suit in Clark County District Court.

The suit centers on a particular episode of the Discovery Channel series "American Casino" that depicted a high-end blackjack tournament at Green Valley Ranch. Pane says casino management intended to paint him as a cheater to spice up an episode.

Casino officials declined to comment on the suit. Pane says he has never cheated, nor has he ever been accused of cheating. He said he was also welcomed as a regular at Green Valley Ranch and played other casino games.
