Fourth Circuit upholds part of North Carolina's video poker law

In Helton v. Good, the Fourth Circuit upheld part and struck part of a North Carolina statute dealing with video poker machines, in an opinion by Judge Wilkinson, joined by Judge Williams. Judge Niemeyer wrote a separate opinion, concurring in part and dissenting as to the decision to strike part of the law as violating due process. The district court had found both parts of the law to be unconstitutional.

The AP has this report on the case, under the headline "Federal Appeals Court Restores Video Poker Law."
