Description

The San Jose Mercury News covers the indictment of 55 people connected with area cardrooms that offer "California games," a variety of Asian-style games that are popular with the city's Vietnamese population. The indictments -- and subsequent investigations that revealed loan sharking and drug dealing connected with cardrooms -- led the city of San Jose to shut down all of its card-clubs.
