Connecticut casinos use home liens to recoup gambling debts

Two Connecticut tribal casinos have placed dozens of liens on homes across the state since the early 2000s, for amounts as small as a few thousand dollars, according to a Globe review of land and court records.

Experts interviewed by the Globe — including current and former casino executives, academics, problem gambling counselors, and a representative of the American Gaming Association, the commercial casino industry’s trade group — said it is unusual for a casino to use property liens to collect debts.
