NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A federal judge’s ruling preventing a national horse racing authority in Louisiana and West Virginia from enforcing its rules was temporarily blocked by a federal appeals court in New Orleans on Friday.
A ruling late last month by a federal judge in Monroe said the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority likely went beyond its limits on three rules that went into effect on July 1.
The central government had demanded a stay on the judge’s order. The 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals Court said it would temporarily halt the order while considering the matter.
U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty’s ruling states that when covered horses are defined by the rules, it is necessary for investigators to confiscate the record of the owner of a covered horse and Basing State or any person performing “services”. When it comes to ability. Partly paid for maintenance on the race purse.
Doughty’s decision came in lawsuits filed by the state government and racing officials in two states. It is not clear how long the stay on Doughty’s decision will remain in force.
