DC Judge Refuses to Halt DC Lottery’s Controversial Deal with Intralot

  • 0


DC Superior Court Judge John Campbell has refused to halt the DC Lottery’s controversial deal with tech provider Intralot.

Last month, a different DC judge issued a temporary restraining order on Intralot’s deal based on a request by DC resident Dylan Carragher, a software developer who filed a lawsuit to force DC to hold a competitive tender for the betting contract.

Judge Campbell justified his refusal to honour Carragher’s injunction request by saying he did not think Carragher’s lawsuit will succeed. Campbell added that “it clearly and unquestionably was within the Council’s authority” to waive the competitive bidding requirement. Carragher has already indicated that he will appeal Campbell’s ruling, so the action now shifts to the DC Court of Appeals.
