WOOSTER, MA -- The Amusement and Music Operators Association and AMI Entertainment Network Inc. have moved to dismiss a federal antitrust lawsuit filed by an online reseller of jukeboxes and amusement machines. A hearing for the case has been set for June 26 in Worcester, MA.

Shrewsbury, MA-based Lease America, or Lease America.org Inc., filed the complaint in the U.S. District Court for the district of Massachusetts in January accusing AMOA of pressuring Rowe (AMI) not to supply jukeboxes to Lease America, which sells amusement equipment to locations.

The complaint charges that in early 2009 AMOA advised the jukebox firm that its operator members would no longer use Rowe jukeboxes if it allowed Lease America to sell its jukeboxes directly to locations. The complaint alleges that Rowe terminated its agreement with Lease America in March 2009 and remotely disabled Lease America's jukeboxes without warning. Lease America is seeing damages and jury trial. | SEE STORY
