  • In his client's defense, Opendack claimed the city was arbitrarily distingishing between types of gambling. And he was a determined attorney. He initiated a separate lawsuit, attempting to force Carroll /the county prosecutor in 1961/ to seize all punchboards, spindle devices, and sports cards, not just the football cards. To back up his complaint, Opendack provided evidence of seven taverns with open gambling.
