ONLINE GAMBLING: COURT SAYS STILL ILLEGAL
The Associated Press just released the following, dated September 2, 2009:
Philadelphia - A U.S. appeals court upheld an Internet gambling ban Tuesday, rejecting a challenge from an association of offshore bookies that the federal prohibition was too vague and violated privacy rights.
The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia rejected arguments from Interactive Media Entertainment & Gaming Association in New Jersey, which had filed the lawsuit hoping to legalize online betting in the state.
Congress passed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act in 2006 to ban online gambling that would be illegal in the state where the individual or gambling business conducts the transaction.
Guess online enthusiasts are SOL for now.
