On Thursday, June 25, 2015, the Michigan Court of Appeals granted a motion by the Michigan Gaming Control Board (“MGCB”) to give immediate effect to new charity gaming regulations. The court previously decided to overturn an injunction preventing the rules from going into effect.

The MGCB and its Executive Director began enforcing the new regulations last May, but the Court of Claims placed an injunction on further enforcement of the new rules in August of 2014 after the rules were challenged on procedural grounds by the Michigan Charitable Gaming Association. On appeal, the Court of Appeals held that the rules were properly instituted and overturned the injunction on May 28, 2015.

On July 9, 2015, an appeal of the Appeal’s Court ruling to the Michigan Supreme Court was filed by the Michigan Charitable Gaming Association.

The case is Michigan Charitable Gaming Association v. State of Michigan, Michigan Supreme Court, Case No. 151928.
