State Appeals Court Decision On Sweepstakes and Attorney General Issues Guidance to Law Enforcement

We’ve blogged before about internet sweepstakes at some length here.

According to the news outlet The News and Observer, published among the oaks of Raleigh, the State will seek an expedited appeal of Judge Craig’s ruling as to the unconstitutionality of N.C.G.S. 14-306.4(i).

In addition, State Attorney General Roy Cooper has issued a written advisory to law enforcement officials regarding N.C.G.S. 14-306.4 in the wake of the recent court rulings.

We’ll keep an eye on the resulting fallout and pending appeal.
