Coalition to Break Internet Gambling Supports DOJ’s Request

Last week Federal Judge Barbadoro turned down the United States Department of Justice’s revised opinion on the 1961 Wire Act. The department ultimately confirms intentions to appeal Judge Barbadoro’s ruling. Ultimately it goes beyond Court Appeals and comes down to predictions over the matter pointing in the direction of the Supreme Court. Just like Federal Judge Barbadoro said himself.

The Partnership to Stop Internet Gambling, the top foe to the US online gambling expansion, has come out with a statement of support and praise towards the Department of Justice’s decision to plea against the court decision that turned down their revised stance on the Wire Act.

Parker Mantell, a spokesperson for the Union said that

“American families do not want casinos available on their kids’ mobile devices 24-7, especially now that online casinos are offering cartoon and fairytale-themed games and advertisements for online gaming appearing on websites targeted at children. The partnership remains confident that our position is correct legally – and from a policy standpoint.”

Though that may be pointing out someone’s truth even for some percentage of US citizens, particularly those unwilling to pay any mind to the advancing developments in behavioral studies and the utilization of safety measures for regulated gambling, the disagreement does not stand up to enquiry. Thus, the problem here is either the already too well-established left-right/liberal-conservative stand-off or that of losing sight of the larger picture.

The microtransactions, which nearly all newly released mobile game offers for several purposes of enhancing the players’ performance and thus overall gaming experience, alone, ought to bring about far more serious concerns for those “American families” Mantell is referring to.

In January, the United States Department of Justice issued a revised reading of the 1961 Wire Act through the Office of Legal Counsel. Now the DoJ is attempting to enforce a new meaning, which widens the possibilities of the betting activities, which fall under the regulations of the Wire Act.

To cut to the chase – and as the all too clearly suggestive name of the supporting Coalition implies – to ban internet gambling in the United States.

The New Hampshire State Lottery, backed by many other state lotteries and businesses, challenged the attempted enforcement of changing of interpretation, only to come out victorious under the rule of Federal Judge Paul Barbadoro. At this point, the Department has extended the forbearance period of the revision in wait of the Court’s final decision.
