On May 22, 2014, a group of 15 charitable organizations and gaming suppliers filed a lawsuit in the Michigan Court of Claims seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent Michigan Gaming Control Board (“MGCB”) Executive Director Richard Kalm from implementing charitable gaming rule changes that went into effect on May 14, 2014. Alternatively, the groups sought a preliminary injunction against the enforcement of rules. On Friday, May 30, 2014, the Court of Claims granted the Plaintiff’s request for a preliminary injunction.

The plaintiffs include the Michigan Charitable Gaming Association, various charitable organizations, and charitable gaming suppliers. The MGCB, its Executive Director Richard Kalm, and the State of Michigan have been named as the defendants.

On Friday, May 30, 2014, the Court of Claims granted the Plaintiff’s request for preliminary injunction and scheduled a pre-trial hearing for next Thursday, June 12, 2014.
