A Sad Loss for I-Gaming

18 December 2003

We were very sad to learn this morning that eCOGRA's Julie Sidwell, a good friend to many in the I-gaming industry, passed away last night at her home in Texas.

Julie made a name for herself as the woman behind Gambling Grumbles, a dispute resolution service for online gamblers. She joined eCOGRA in October as a fair gaming advocate for the association.

Julie provided a much needed service by giving cheated players a voice and giving maligned operators a chance to clear their names. Her efforts helped improve the image of online gambling and will be missed dearly.

More importantly, she'll be missed as a friend.
