Gaming Group Files Case Against US Attorney General
By Miriam H
The Interactive Media Entertainment & Gaming Association (iMEGA) has launched court proceedings in an attempt to stop the United States from continuing to implement the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) which was passed late last year.

The lawsuit, which names US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, the Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Reserve System as defendants, contests the UIGEA, an act which makes it illegal for banking facilities to accept money transfers to and from online gambling sites.

‘The purpose of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act is to prevent Americans from engaging in their fundamental rights to conduct their lives in the manner they wish to live it - to be free from the government imposing public morality in the privacy of one's home,’ said iMEGA attorney Eric M. Bernstein, Esq., in a statement.

The group, which describes itself as ‘a voice of reason in Washington and around the world for the fair, equitable, and rational governance of interactive Internet commerce and communications’, is still in its early stages with its website currently only brandishing its logo and lacking any uploaded content.
