Supreme Court dismisses Earth Future Lottery appeal The Supreme Court of Canada today dismissed an appeal by the Earth Future Lottery and the Attorney General of Prince Edward Island to legalize a proposed Internet-based lottery (CNM, Jan. 23/03). The court apparently heard nothing new in the arguments presented by Earth Future and P.E.I. counsel, and dismissed the case after a brief recess "for substantially the same reasons" as an original determination by the Appeal Division of the Supreme Court of Prince Edward Island. The court dispensed with hearing from the respondents, a coalition of provincial lottery companies, or from interveners. Canadian NEW MEDIA will have full details in its upcoming issue.
