Patrick Devlin, a compliance officer for the Michigan Gaming Control Board and a former assistant attorney general, has a history of what the board has delicately termed “noncompliance.”
Since 2003, Devlin has filed at least 19 grievance appeals with the Civil Service Commission, mostly alleging negligence in the state’s oversight of tribal casinos and retaliation against Devlin for expressing his opinions.
In June, Devlin filed a lawsuit against Attorney General Mike Cox, seeking in part to force tribal casinos to obtain liquor licenses. He also filed suit against the gaming board and other state departments over hiring practices and other complaints. He was suspended with pay shortly afterward.
Michigan Gaming Control Board Executive Director Richard Kalm said Devlin was suspended pending an investigation into behavioral and employment issues, not because he filed the lawsuits.
