The USDC for Western District of Texas (Austin Division) found that the Texas "in-person" gaming requirement with respect to advanced deposit wagering does not discriminate against or unduly burden interstate commerce. The court also found that the Texas Racing Commission Defendants demonstrated to the Court's satisfaction that the "in-person" regulatory requirement comported with the demands of the US Constitution and does not transgress the Dormant Commerce Clause (DCC) doctrine. Accordingly, the Court dismissed the case brought by Plaintiff Churchill Downs and entered judgment on behalf of the Defendants.
