Outgoing Attorney General appeals Sadler case, sparks remarks from attorneys

By

The responses are not favorable.

Bill Stanley, Anthony F. "Tony" Troy, and Jason Hicks, attorneys for Virginia business owner and Nascar legend Hermie Sadler, responded to outgoing Attorney General Mark Herring's appeal of the Greensville Circuit Court. The appeal is for the preliminary injunction restoring the operation of skills games in hundreds of Virginia’s small businesses.

"With the filing of Revolutionary Racing's amicus brief, which is effectively a request to be a party to the appeal, the curtain has finally been pulled back to reveal that out-of-state casinos are driving this attack on skill games and Virginia's small businesses," said Stanley. "We suspected this all along. The attempt to ban skill games was never about good government policy. It was about money and greed and the big casinos were behind it.”

Both Troy and Sadler agreed that the appeal would do nothing to help small businesses or the welfare of Virginia residents.

"If the soon-to-be-former Attorney General ever engages in self-reflection exercises as to why he is entering the final weeks of his term, the decision to appeal this injunction would be a good place to start," said Troy. "He's helping big, out-of-state gaming interests crush local small business owners like Hermie Sadler. The Attorney General should stand on the side of his fellow Virginians, not out-of-state special interests who don't care about the people of our commonwealth."

"I am once again disappointed in the actions of our current Attorney General," Sadler said. "He continues to align himself, and now our state, with out-of-state corporate gambling fat-cats. He should be standing up for the rights of the people he is supposed to serve - Virginians.”
