A Closer Look at the Earth Fund Lottery Decision

26 July 2002

The Prince Edward Island Court of Appeals ruled April 24 that the Earth Fund, a charitable organization, does not have the right to operate an Internet lottery.

The court said that because tickets could be purchased by people outside of Prince Edward Island, the lottery license that the island granted to the Earth Fund was not valid.
