U.S. Appeals Court Rejects Trump-Era Wire Act Memo
January 22, 2021
In a potentially historic opinion, a federal appeals court on Wednesday rejected an appeal by the U.S. Department of Justice that posed a threat to the future expansion of the gambling industry.
Two judges from the First U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston affirmed a June 3, 2019 decision by a New Hampshire federal district judge who ruled the U.S. Wire Act of 1961 applies only to interstate sports betting and does not prohibit internet gaming or online lotteries.
