California cardrooms file lawsuit against tribal sports betting initiative
| By Marese O'Hagan
Two cardrooms, Hollywood Park Casino and Cal-Pac Rancho Cordova, have filed a lawsuit challenging an initiative that would legalise sports betting in California and allow tribal owned casinos to sue cardrooms.
The suit was filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court.
It aims to halt the California Sports Wagering Regulation and Unlawful Gambling Enforcement Act, which could appear on the November ballot. A referendum on sports betting legalisation in California will take place in November if enough signatures are gathered in support of the ballot.
