What ever happened to Griffin after they declared bankruptcy in 2005 -- did they eventually close up shop? There's nothing on them on the google that I can find ...

I believe it's called Griffin Gold and is only on the internet.

Their website is still up, albeit with a copyright of 1999:

Thanks. It does seem old and outdated. I wonder if they are actually providing services of any type.

Griffin is a disgusting group of parasites that violate civil rights.

I am not sure what that has to do with the question, though I probably agree with you.

But, still, how about the question? Isn't is just Beverly now (if it exists)? Who else is there? Even the information on Wikipedia seems woefully out of date:

I don't know if a non-government group can "violate civil rights" but they do libel and slander people via lumping simply good players in with known cheats.

Griffin was rough, and at times lawlessly old school.
They lost business because of losing a lawsuit from Michael Russo and James Grosjean. For gamblers to beat by law a so-called private enforcement agency in Nevada that was supported by casinos REALLY makes a strong statement. They dragged a major casino into the losing side of a lawsuit by their actions, and their client business just got creamed. They were dropped by casinos left and right, and casinos managed to thrive just fine without their services.

Now, I'm known here (- just a tiny bit) as siding with the Gaming industry over the gamblers as to who is wearing the white hats and black hats, but really it's the malfeasance that's present on both sides that I'm against, an "anything goes" cat and mouse game attitude. Griffin was at times malicious and overboard, and got their karmic payback. I believe they would have faded in any case as less necessary than they claimed ("You'd be overrun with dirtbag cheats if it weren't for us! You'd be bleeding cash if it weren't for us! We will save you - sign up here!")

Casinos share known cheater info by networking with each other without requiring a third party middleman to manage this now.

But, what about an answer to my question? 8-(
