They include Post Oak Poker Club partners Daniel Kebort, William Heur III, Sergio D. Cabreba and Alan Chodrow. Stephen Farshid, a former employee of Prime Social Poker Club.

The district attorney’s office charged nine employees of the west Houston poker rooms with felonies including engaging in organized criminal activity, gambling promotion and money laundering after police raided the clubs last May.

In July, Ogg’s office said in court papers prosecutors were dismissing the cases because of “a potential conflict of interest due to [an] employee being called as a witness.”

Ogg later confirmed that Amir Mireskandari, a large donor to her political campaigns whom she had hired as a financial crimes consultant, was one of several conflicts that led her to dismiss the case.

Case files were ultimately turned over to the FBI with federal prosecutors declining to take any action.

The suit alleges Ogg and Mireskandari of malicious prosecution, false arrest, defamation and infliction of emotional distress.
