The FBI and a Nevada casino regulator entered Ceasars Palace posed as Internet repairman and gathered evidence against suspects in an allegedly illegal online gambling operation without ever consulting with a judge, according to testimony in the case.

The Associated Press reports that Nevada Gaming Control Board Special Agent Ricardo Lopez acknowledged in court, like those before him, that he had no permission from prosecutors and lacked a warrant.

The investigators didn’t even bother to get permission from the hotel.

The defense is trying to get the case dismissed because of what they say was an illegal search.
