Re: Very slippery slope...

Who said the repairmen just showed up? Maybe they waited for the guys to call the front desk and ask them to send someone up before sending them? Even if they did, it would be easy to argue that the hotel provided monitoring the state of the connection as a service. Vegas hotels bend over backwards for high rollers (whether they bet a lot or just spend a lot) so that would not make me think twice if I was in their situation.

Though you'd think they could have dug up a couple FBI guys who actually knew tech so they didn't have to fake it...
