In an effort to resurrect a ban on internet gambling, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) on Friday appealed a June 3 decision by a federal judge in New Hampshire who ruled the U.S. Wire Act of 1961 prohibits interstate sports betting but no other forms of online gaming.
The three-page “notice of appeal” includes just one sentence saying U.S. Attorney General William Barr, the Justice Department and the United States “hereby appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.”
The First U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is located in Boston, Massachusetts, where the appeal would be heard if accepted as expected.
