Poker rooms in Los Angeles County cities have joined a lawsuit against last year’s initiative that allowed tribal casinos to install slot machines.

The lawsuit against the initiative, filed by Northern California card rooms, contends that Indian casinos as a result have an illegal monopoly on the slot machine business.

The four card clubs also argue that it would be next to impossible for them to recover lost revenue.
