Golden Nugget owner Tilman Fertitta says he strongly disagrees with a judge who ordered the payments earlier Friday, but says the casino will comply with his order.

Immediately after the ruling, the Golden Nugget said it would appeal.

The dispute stems from games of mini-baccarat held at the casino on April 30. Unbeknownst to either the players or the casino, the cards put into use for the games were not shuffled as their manufacturer promised they would be.
