Dicks locked up
Sportingbet chairman Peter Dicks spent last night in a New York jail after appearing in court. He's expected to seek bail at the New York Supreme Court.
The Louisiana, law under which Mr Dicks has been arrested, explicitly outlaws internet gambling in massive contrast to national Federal law where internet gambling is a legal grey area. However, every gambling executive will now be even more wary of setting foot anywhere in the US for fear of being arrested under the Louisiana law.
