JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Lawyers for a Mississippi casino say a man lied under oath as part of a lawsuit that claims he was hurt by a slot machine.
Randy Perkins claims he was gambling at the Tunica Roadhouse Casino in August 2010 when the door of the machine fell open and hurt his left arm and back. He filed a $750,000 lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Greenville in July 2011.
The casino filed a motion this week to have the lawsuit dismissed. The casino denies the machine hurt Perkins and says he lied about six previous workman's compensation claims in Ohio, Nebraska and Georgia.
Perkins, of Hickman County, Tenn., claims he was unemployed at the time, but alleges his injury prevented him from getting a job at a food plant in Louisiana.
