Court reinstates challenge to SC video poker law

August 29, 2007

There's a new legal challenge against South Carolina's video poker laws.

Today a divided federal appeals court reinstated a lawsuit challenging the state law banning video poker.

A three-judge panel of the 4th US Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a district court judge's ruling that Jimmy Martin's lawsuit did not belong in federal court.

Martin is the owner of a business called Lucky Strike, LLC.

South Carolina lawmakers amended the state's gambling laws in 1999 to ban video poker and allow police to seize the machines.
