Guam attorney general sues over gambling machines licenses

The office of Guam Attorney General Leonardo Rapadas filed suit seeking a court judgment to void regulations cited this month by the island’s revenue and tax department in relicensing about 200 gambling machines, including Liberty, Symbolix and Match Play machines, for a year. Rapadas argues that the machines are illegal under Guam law while the Governor Eddie Calvo’s legal counsel argues that machines registered before August 2001 are legal under revenue and tax regulations. The governor and operators Guam Music Inc., D&D Games and Atlas Amusement Enterprises are also defendants in the attorney general’s suit.
