✴️ Wire Act Lawsuit Hearing ✴️
McIntyre, a former attorney, asserts that the DOJ’s recent motion won’t stop the hearing. Arguments over lack of standing and jurisdiction, he says, are “standard litigation practice.”
In addition to the plaintiffs and defendants themselves, McIntyre confirmed that the parties who submitted amicus briefs — including New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal — are invited to speak before the court.
“I expect there will be a lot of talking,” said McIntyre. He provided an affidavit on lottery operations but doesn’t plan to testify. “I expect it will be a lengthy proceeding.”
McIntyre predicts a narrow window between the middle and end of May for the judge to issue his decision. The DOJ recently extended its non-prosecution period related to the Wire Act opinion into the middle of June.
New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon MacDonald backed up McIntyre’s contention that a ruling will come by the end of May in speaking to lawmakers last week, according to the Associated Press.
