AG files suit over licensing of gaming devices

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Attorney General Leonardo Rapadas has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Revenue & Taxation, the governor, and companies that own gaming devices. The complaint, filed in the Superior Court This of Guam afternoon, names Rev & Tax director John Camacho, Governor Eddie Calvo, Atlas Amusement Enterprises Inc., Darryl Styles (dba, D&D Games), and Guam Music Inc. 

The government is seeking a declaration from the court that would void the current regulations that purport to regulate the gaming devices.  The lawsuit also seeks to force the revocation of the gaming device licenses that were issued by Rev & Tax against the advice and wishes of the AG's Office.  Rapadas has also asked that no new licenses be issued.  The suit contends that there is an explicit conflict between the regulation that allows gaming devices that were licensed prior to August 2001 to be licensed while the law prohibits the licensing of gambling devices.

The AG argues the law must be followed and that rev and tax's proposed regulations are void and lacking in force and effect.
