IMEGA Appeal Court Ruling Vaugely Bad?

In a vaguely sensational Melted Felt exclusive we bring you the low-down on the spin behind the legal-speak in the vaguely worded response the law suit that claimed the UIGEA was clearly too vague to be legal - under the constitution no less.

Yes, dear Melted Felt readers, the outcome disappointed observers, who were sure that the vagueness argument was crystal clear. As it turns out, to be considered too vague, a law must be vague in all states... and after one or two senators from *ahem* more conservative states passed their own laws making anything vaguely pleasurable completely illegal the argument was dead in the water - and so dried up.

With the future of online gambling in the balance we sent the MF Mole to look through the fine details of the reading and find out who is really responsible for the decision making at the end of the day.

3rd Circuit appeals court judges actually passed this decision to the individual states, who in turn passed it to the county and metropolitan area authorities, who passed the decision down to the local level, who left it up to individual church parishes who empowered the family units to make their own decisions... Yes, dear Melted Felt readers, playing poker online may or may not be legal... you are just going to have to wait until your father gets home to find out.
