    iMEGA Responds, Contests U.S. DoJ Dismissal Motion in UIEGA Challenge

    Association legal team demonstrates our case for standing and potential harm to our members through bad law!

    In accordance to the deadline set by Judge Mary L. Cooper, today, iMEGA’s legal team filed its brief with the U.S. District Court in New Jersey, Trenton Division, in response to a U.S. Department of Justice motion to dismiss our complaint against the UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act).

    The defendants, U.S. Department of Justice Federal Trade Commission and Federal Reserve, contend that iMEGA does not have requisite standing to bring a complaint versus UIGEA, and were given rules that regulations for the new law have not yet been created, that the law is “unripe” for this kind of challenge.

    In iMEGA’s response brief, attorneys provided ample precedent for both their standing as a trade association acting on behalf of their members, and for the potential jeopardy of prosecution the new law puts some of their members in. They contend that it is not necessary to wait for one of their members to be prosecuted before the law may be scrutinized by the courts.

    The brief also highlights the heretofore unexamined jeopardy that affiliate marketers who live and operate in the U.S. may be in due to the UIGEA.

    The defendants have until September 21st to respond to iMEGA’s request of the court for a temporary restraining order, preventing UIGEA from being enforced before their complaint can be properly heard by Judge Mary L. Cooper.

    iMEGA has become a very powerful source and they are accepting individual and corporate members in its trade association.

    What is iMEGA? An association dedicated to the continued growth and innovation of the Internet.
