Cantor and Will Hill Cross Swords in Nevada

Thanks to the acquisition of Brandywine Bookmaking in 2011 and its growing presence in Nevada, Brit bookie William Hill seems to have grown into a thorn in the eye of the Cantor Gaming group, which controls much of the sports betting activity in Nevada.

Another thing that seems to bother Cantor is that the Brandywine founder, former Cantor exec Joe Asher, us currently the head of Will Hill's US operations.

However, this month, Cantor made another attempt at spurring the rivalry when it submitted a new court filing in Nevada, claiming that William Hill deliberately poached trade secrets and potential clients when it bought Brandywine.

In the filing, Cantor alleges that William Hill "...participated in, and plans to benefit from, Asher's usurpation of business ideas and opportunities that belong to (Cantor). (Cantor is) informed and believes that the William Hill defendants have acted in concert with Asher and Brandywine for this unlawful objective.'

In line with this, Cantor has asked for unspecified damages to compensate for the alleged theft of business secrets.

So far, no comment has arrived from Cantor or Will Hill regarding the matter.
