Is the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act Unconstitutional?

The Interactive Media Entertainment and Gaming Association (IMEGA) filed a lawsuit in United States District Court on Tuesday against the United States Attorney's Office, The Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Reserve and the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA).

The lawsuit alleges that the UIGEA is unconstitutional. Because it infringes on American's fundamental rights in the privacy of their own home as well as the recent ruling from the World Trade Organization (WTO) that the United States ban on internet gambling is illegal, IMEGA is asking for an injunction which would cease the enforcement of the UIGEA

The UIGEA prevents U.S. credit-card companies and banks from processing payments to online gambling businesses.

The lawsuit today continues a string of positive news concerning the online gambling Industry. Monday, Neteller issued a release concerning the return of all monies owed to United States. On Friday the House of Representatives will hold hearings on Internet gambling. Several Representatives have introduced or have supported bills supporting the right to gamble on-line and one calling for a year long study on internet gambling.
