On Monday, June 18, 2012, Genesee County Circuit Court Judge Judith Fullerton denied a preliminary injunction request by the owners of the Flint Business Center that sought to allow for the continued operation of its internet sweepstakes cafe.

The denial comes after Michigan Attorney General Bill Schutte’s division of Alcohol and Gambling Enforcement issued a new round of cease-and-desist letters in regards to nine Internet sweepstakes cafes last Friday.

The Flint Business Center, one of the cafes that received a cease-and-desist letter earlier this year, filed its request for preliminary injunction in the Genesee County Circuit Court to prevent the state from exercising the enforcement measures outlined in the cease-and-desist letters. According to the request for preliminary injunction, the Flint Business Center argued that the games do not require consideration because sweepstakes entries are offered for free with purchase or upon request.
