Welcome to today’s installment of the Massachusetts Casino Chronicles, fly-and-sledgehammer edition. The fly: Thomas Keen, a gambling critic who is fighting a proposed racino at the Plainridge Racecourse, in his town of Plainville. The sledgehammer: A defamation suit brought against Keen by the aptly-named Ourway Realty, which operates the racecourse. The offense: A Facebook posting for which Keen is not even responsible.
