iMEGA Announces July 7 Court Date
June 24, 2009 (CAP Newswire) — The hearing date for iMEGA’s appeal to overturn the UIGEA has been set for July 7 and will take place in the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, iMEGA is reporting today on its website. (Last week, several news sources speculated that the court date would be July 6; read about that here.)
Also announced was the three-judge panel that will hear the case. Those judges are Dolores Korman Sloviter (a Jimmy Carter appointee), Thomas L. Ambro (a Bill Clinton appointee), and Kent A. Jordan (a George W. Bush appointee).
Representing iMEGA at the hearing will be Eric M. Bernstein, an attorney who has previously argued to have overturn UIGEA in U.S. District Court, as well as Stephen A. Saltzburg, a law school university professor and former U.S. deputy attorney general.
"This law will finally have to stand on its own two feet in court, free from politics and all other outside influences," said iMEGA chairman Joe Brennan Jr. "We feel very confident that when the judges take a look at the law, they will see just how defective it is, and they will overturn it."
