    Default Washington court upholds Internet gambling law

    Lee Rousso, the Washington attorney who challenged the state's Internet gambling law which makes it a Class C felony for players to gamble online, failed in his bid to overturn the law yesterday.

    A King County Superior court ruled that playing poker online will remain illegal.

    "There is virtually no public support for this law," said local attorney Lee Rousso as he stood among poker fans in front of the Regional Justice Center in Kent after the hearing today.

    He said he expects the issue ultimately to be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Rousso urged the 70 or so members of the Poker Players Alliance (PPA), who were wearing red shirts and holding signs that read such things as, "Poker is a skill game," to write and call their lawmakers demanding changes in the law.

    "It's incumbent on each of you to tell your politicians how you feel," Rousso said.
