Six New States File Amicus Brief In HISA Unconstitutionality Lawsuit

Six states have filed an amicus “friend of the court” brief in support of the unconstitutionality lawsuit for the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act (HISA) working its way through federal court in Lexington, Ky., according to a report on harnesslink.com.

The amicus brief contends that HISA amounts to a private club having governmental powers, and thus is unconstitutional.

The six filing states are: Ohio, Alaska, Arkansas, Idaho, Mississippi, and Nebraska.

They join Oklahoma, West Virginia, and Louisiana, along with the United States Trotting Association, several state racing commissions, the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Racing Association, several Native American-owned race tracks, and Hanover Shoe Farms, Inc.
