The D.C. resident who sued the District over the implementation of its sports betting program has appealed the case to the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, according to a Jan. 9 filing.
The appeal comes after a D.C. Superior Court ruled against Dylan Carragher, a sports betting app developer who says the sole-source contract awarded to D.C. Lottery operator Intralot to implement sports betting in the city violated the Home Rule Act that governs the District.
Judge John Campbell on Dec. 4 granted the District’s motion for summary judgment in Carragher’s case, saying that the D.C. Council acted lawfully in exempting the sports betting contract from the normal competitive procurement process.
Carragher’s attorney, Donald Temple, filed a notice of intention to appeal on Dec. 13, and filed the appeal itself Thursday.
