DO 'BAD ACTOR' CLAUSES VIOLATE THE U.S. CONSTITUTION?
2014-06-19

The question of 'bad actors' - companies that continued to service the US market after the UIGEA passed in 2006 - has been at the heart of debate around online poker legalisation proposals recently, particularly in the political and tribal maneuvering in California, where two bills are currently before the Legislature (see previous InfoPowa reports).

It's an issue in which Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker parent the Rational Group have an interest, having paid hundreds of millions in settlements with the US Department of Justice and formed an alliance with the California-based Morongo tribes and leading commercial card rooms in the state.

In the latest development, a distinguished - and independent - Harvard law professor Laurence H. Tribes assessment of the validity of bad actor provisions in the two Californian legislative proposals will give Rational encouragement.

The learned academic says that, if challenged, "bad actor" clauses are unlikely to survive an attack based on federal constitutional grounds.

The Constitutional Law professor names three areas where "bad actor" provisions could be effectively defeated:

* Such clauses qualify as constitutionally prohibited bills of attainder - a class that legislatively determines guilt and inflicts punishment upon an identifiable individual without provision of the protections of a judicial trial, otherwise known as trial by legislature.

* The December 31, 2006 cut-off date used in the California bills is arbitrary and discriminates against Pokerstars in a commercial protectionism sense under the Constitution's Equal Protection Clause.

* The Californian proposals trigger serious constitutional issues in an intellectual property sense, prejudicing Pokerstars' IP in California through restriction and contravening the Takings Clause in the federal constitution.




POKER FILM SEQUEL RELEASE DATE PUBLISHED (Update)
2013-04-24

The much anticipated sequel to the poker movie Rounders will be in theatres by end September titled "Runner, Runner" entertainment media in the United States report this week.

Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake star in the sequel, the script for which was written by the original Rounders authors. The new movie is directed by Brad Furman and is a set in the world of online gambling.

The switch in starring roles, replacing Rounders stars Matt Damon and Edward Norton, has excited some discussion, but Affleck and Timberlake apparently deliver a very professional depiction of their characters in the film.

Runner Runner will show Timberlake playing the role of a student-gambler earning his way through an ivy league college by playing in the online high stakes poker sector, whilst Affleck plays an internet poker businessman operating offshore in Costa Rica.

The two eventually come together in the Central American country when Timberlake's character feels he has been screwed by the operator.

Recognising the younger man's talent, Affleck's character employs Timberlake and the at times hectic and nosebleed action develops from there.

Screenwriter Brian Koppelman says he and fellow writer David Levien started work on the script back in late 2010, arriving at a first draft early in 2011. Producers that include Leonardo Di Caprio liked the concept, and production started in April 2012.
