The Harris County District Attorney’s Office charged the owners and upper-level management of Post Oak Poker Club and Prime Social each with felony money laundering charges back in May.  Both establishments were raided that month.

The DA cited “multiple potential conflicts of interest” as the reason for Tuesday's decision not to move forward.

“We discovered this and we want to ensure that an outside agency independently reviews everything,” DA Kim Ogg said.  

In one instance, Ogg said the conflict is due to a “potential defense witness who is a former contract employee and a political fundraiser.” She declined to comment what those other conflicts are.

She claims that millions of dollars illegally flowed through both rooms.

The cases are being referred to the FBI.
