Video sweepstakes companies to file appeal to U.S. Supreme Court

Video sweepstakes companies who lost their state Supreme Court appeal on Dec. 14 — when the court found the state’s ban on such games constitutional — are seeking a stay of that decision pending an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Their motion seeking that stay is here [1].

As Hest Technologies argues in the brief supporting the request:

A brief stay of this Court’s judgment is appropriate while Plaintiffs seek further appellate review. As explained below, without a stay of this Court’s judgment, Plaintiffs’ First Amendment rights could be violated, their businesses may permanently close, and thousands of North Carolina employees may lose their jobs. In light of these drastic consequences, the equities strongly favor a brief stay while Plaintiffs present their petition for a writ of certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court.
