Arguments to be heard on July 7th in Philadelphia

US Court sets July date for iMEGA's UIGEA challenge

(US).- The US 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals has set a date of July 7th to hear oral arguments from lawyers representing the Interactive Media Entertainment & Gaming Association (iMEGA) and the US Department of Justice, as part of a court challenge by iMEGA against the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA).


rguments will be heard at 10am on July 7th at the U.S courthouse in Philadelphia, with a three-judge panel deciding the case. Judge Dolores Korman Sloviter, a Carter appointee, Judge Thomas L Ambro, a Clinton appointee, and Judge Kent A Jordan, a George W. Bush appointee, have been confirmed as the three-judge panel.

iMEGA will be represented by Eric M Bernstein, who first argued to have the UIGEA overturned in a U.S District Court, and Stephen A Saltzburg, a professor at the George Washington University school of law and former deputy attorney-general of the United States.

The defendants, the US Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Reserve, will be represented by Nicholas J Bagley and Jacqueline E Coleman of the U.S DoJ’s civil division in Washington, DC.

"This law will finally have to stand on it’s own two feet in court, free from politics and all other outside influences," said iMEGA Chairman Joe Brennan Jr. "We feel very confident that when the judges take a look at the law, they will see just how defective it is, and they will overturn it."
