The Ongoing Uncertainty Created by the Latest DOJ Wire Act Opinion

The Ongoing Uncertainty Created by the Latest DOJ Wire Act Opinion

October 14, 2019, 10:15 AM - 11:00 AM

Veronese 2405
Since the U.S. Department of Justice issued its revised opinion on the Wire Act of 1961, and then extended the moratorium on its enforcement until June 15, the uncertainty and confusion that has resulted has been widespread. Multiple states have initiated legal action against the federal government, the most notable being New Hampshire filing suit to protect their related revenues. Although it's hard to predict what the status of the case will be by October, this session will review the current state of affairs, discuss the implications of the revised DOJ opinion and its disconnect with UIEGA, its chilling effect on intra-state wagering, the payment processing concerns it raises and more.
