Betfair To Fight WA Govt In High Court
In Australia, Betfair announced it will mount a High Court case against the WA Government's new laws to stop betting exchanges (which came into effect yesterday). Betfair's director of corporate & business affairs Andrew Twaits declared: "Betfair has been left with no choice but to challenge the WA Government's attempts to restrict free trade between the States. The legislation effectively prevents WA residents placing bets with Betfair & prevents betting exchanges operating in WA".
