Media Giant Subpoenaed by Justice Department
By staff
Clear Channel Communications say they are fully co-operating with the Justice Department after it emerged that they have been subpoenaed for running advertising on behalf of an offshore Internet casino. The San Antonio based media giant are required to present all records pertaining to advertisements by Internet gambling establishments dating back to 1997.

Under US law, advertisers and media outlets could potentially be prosecuted for aiding and abetting illegal gambling if they feature such advertisements. Lawrence G. Walters, an attorney who represents several offshore Internet gambling clients, told earlier today that the Justice Department issued several subpoenas last September targeting Web sites, radio and TV broadcasters, magazines, newspapers, sports information networks and others. He said that the subpoenas have had a 'chilling effect' on advertising for offshore iGaming industry.
