On September 24th, the Washington State Supreme Court upheld the state law outlawing online gambling. Lawyer and Poker Players Alliance member Lee Rousso challenged the law, claiming it violated the Commerce Clause of the US Constitution, but the Supreme Cout saw it otherwise. According to their ruling, the law does not discriminate between in and out of state online gambling institutions, therefore it does not violate the Commerce Clause.
I just found out tonight that Pokerstars pulled out from Washington.. I've been on FTP and playing regularly.. Does anyone know if FTP is going to do the same? What are some options for Washington players? I didn't think this day would come so soon! Let me know if you guys know or may have heard of anything..
