“The card room will remain closed unless it is able to demonstrate that it has addressed its funding issues," the Attorney General's office said in a statement issued this week.

The California Gambling Control Commission also received a complaint that contains five allegations against the card room and majority shareholder, Thomas B. Sheridan.

    Use of third-party and patron funds in operations
    Failuring to provide Information and documents requested by the director
    Failing to reveal a fact material to qualification

Sheridan has yet to comment.
