George Maloof Jr. Trial Date

Las Vegas casino magnate and Sacramento Kings co-owner George Maloof Jr. has a trial date for his DUI case.  Maloof Jr. is the owner of the Palms Casino.  On October 9 he was pulled over on suspicion of driving while under the influence just southwest of the Las Vegas Strip. 

Maloof later told The Associated Press that he had four beers at a wedding and that his blood-alcohol level was measured at 0.086%.

That's just over the legal limit in Nevada of 0.08%, but Maloof said he thought he was "nowhere near intoxicated."

Maloof’s attorney Wade Rabenhorst stood before the judge this past week in his client’s absence.

A May 31 trial date has been set.
