BALTIMORE - A former employee of Maryland Live! casino at Arundel Mills Mall has been ordered to stop using a list of big spenders she allegedly stole to boost business at Horseshoe Baltimore casino.
Helena Wong, multicultural executive host at Horseshoe, which is scheduled to open Tuesday, previously worked as a VIP casino host at Maryland Live!
According to a lawsuit filed last week in U.S. District Court, Wong stole confidential information while working there, including a list containing the names and contact information of the casino’s high rollers.
In June, Maryland Live! officials sent Wong a cease and desist letter asking her to return or destroy all Maryland Live! property, but Wong ignored it, according to the suit.
“Maryland Live! has every reason to believe that Wong is aggressively targeting its most valued customers, whom Wong would not have met, or have knowledge of, without her conversion of Maryland Live! customer lists,” lawyers for the Hanover casino wrote in the suit.
U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis issued a temporary restraining order against Wong last week, and ordered her to appear for a preliminary injunction hearing Friday at U.S. District Court in Baltimore.
