Federal Constitutional Court Rejects Onling Gaming Ban Challenge

    The German Federal Constitutional court has rejected a constitutional challenge to a ban on internet sports betting. The challenge was brought about by an online gambling operation. The online gambling company making the challenge cited a 1990 ruling in the German state of Thuringia which allowed sports betting. This 1990 ruling pre-dates Germany in its current form, as it was made in the former Communist East Germany. A ruling in 2004 then banned betting over the internet with immediate effect.

    The company making the challenge was not named in court papers or during proceedings.

    The German state of Saxony along with two other states imposed a ban on commercial online betting earlier this year.

    All 16 of Germany's states are in the process of drafting a law to make illegal Internet gambling altogether. Furthermore they seek to uphold a German state monopoly on lottery ticket sales.

    Online betting companies face increasingly stringent regulations in both the U.S. and Europe as governments seek to protect state-run horse-racing and lotteries.
