It’s not just Las Vegas where the house almost always wins. For nearly two decades, the Federal Trade Commission has come out on top in nearly every administrative lawsuit involving allegations of unfair methods of competition. In fact, the only time it lost in the last 19 years was in February, and even then it was more of a loss by default.
