Federal ban on gambling upheld

September 02, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A federal appeals court upheld a 2006 federal ban on online gambling, denying a challenge by a group of offshore bookmakers who said the prohibition was too vague and violated privacy rights.

The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia rejected arguments from the Interactive Media Entertainment & Gaming Assn. in New Jersey, which had filed the lawsuit hoping to legalize online betting in that state.

The association is considering an appeal.
