Just days after the launch of Desert Rose, California Attorney General Kamala Harris filed a complaint and Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) against Santa Ysabel’s online bingo site, and the DOJ later added a  UIGEA violation  to the list of charges already rendered by the California AG. PGRI Note:  This is a must-read article for anyone interested in the legal/political battleground of U.S. states’ rights versus Tribal Indian rights.  Do Tribal nations have the right to export Internet gaming out of their sovereign land and into the homes of residents outside of their sovereign lands?  This particular legal dispute in California may prompt the U.S. Dept. of Justice to clarify the law and ensure that states’ rights are not trampled beneath the rubric of Tribal “sovereignty”.  This article is interesting for lots of other reasons.  For one thing, it points out the incredible folly that would ensue, bringing in the very online gaming operators and suppliers that should be banned for previous bad behavior (like corruption on major scale that resulted in systemic fraud perpetrated on i-poker players), and doing so with no provisions for state oversight to protect its citizens from being victimized by these operators.

While Betfair's New Jersey online poker room failed to attract players, its online casino is alive and well, filing an October win of $855,869 and a $6,677,288 win during the first ten months of 2014.
