CHARLESTON, WV -- The West Virginia Amusement and Limited Video Lottery Association has dropped its lawsuit against the West Virginia Lottery Commission because the groups have settled their dispute amicably, according to the judge who was to hear the case.

Kanawha Circuit Chief Judge Tod Kaufman dismissed the lawsuit on Oct. 12, saying he was acting at the request of both parties. The state association of video lottery operators had originally filed suit against the lottery in August, contending that the state's proposed rules for bidding on VLT location licenses was unfair to operators.

As reported earlier by VT, the lottery changed those rules at the end of September, giving operators who already held licenses a better chance of keeping their locations when they went up for re-bid >[see story]. Some 7,500 VLT locations go up for bids this month, with licenses covering the next decade of VLT operation.
