World Wide Web Casinos Inc. is suing Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson and Atty. Gen. James Doyle for refusing to let an online gaming business open in a Milwaukee suburb. The lawsuit, filed this week in federal court in Milwaukee, contends that Doyle's office told the firm in March that setting up an Internet gambling business that would serve overseas gamblers was illegal under state law. The company claims, however, that Wisconsin's gambling laws do not apply to its proposed Internet operation.
