The Office of Attorney General’s Response to the Decision in Stop Slots MD 2008 v. State Board of Elections


BALTIMORE, MD (September 15, 2008)- In response to the Order issued this afternoon by the Maryland Court of Appeals, the Office of the Attorney General states, “The organizations that want to prevent the voters from deciding on slots have now lost four times in court. The Court of Appeals today held, once again, that the General Assembly has validly placed the slots question on the November ballot. The Court also agreed with us that the ballot language on the slots issue is fair and accurate. It's time for the opponents of slots to accept the decision of the courts and for all groups interested in the slots issue to present their arguments to the voters.”
