Unlikely To Reverse Doj Online Gambling Determination Says Ag Nominee Lynch (update)

However, will review 2011 memo

Loretta Lynch, US attorney for the Eastern District of New York and an attorney general nominee, told the Senate Judiciary Committee that a reversal of the Department of Justice's Office of Legal Council's (OLC) opinion and the subsequent reinterpretation of the Interstate Wire Act of 1961 is unlikely but that she would review the 2011 memo if she were appointed.

"It is my understanding, however, that OLC opinions are rarely reconsidered," Lynch's statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee said. "Unless in the course of my review I conclude that OLC's interpretation of the Wire Act is unreasonable, I do not intend to take any action to suspend or revoke the opinion."

Lynch was addressing a question set during her Senate confirmation at the end of January 2015 (see previous InfoPowa report) to which the documents were recently made public.
