Montana Judge Overturns Sports Betting Rule
A judge has overturned a rule on Wednesday that limited sports betting in Montana to businesses with an alcoholic beverage license after an investment group challenged the ruling. Lewis and Clark County District Judge Kathy Seeley found that in creating rules to carry out the new sports betting law, the Montana Lottery ran contrary to lawmakers' intent when it required an alcoholic beverage license. Attorney Lyndon Scheveck filed the lawsuit through a Billings investment company called Arete Group. Montana Lottery spokesperson Jennifer McKee said they are reviewing the decision closely.
