Judge Dismisses Sports-Betting Suit For Lack Of Standing

(Providence, RI)--A Rhode Island Superior Court judge is dismissing a lawsuit aimed at stopping legalized sports-betting because the person who filed the suit did not have standing.Attorneys for former Republican candidate for Providence mayor Daniel Harrop say they'll be looking to add a sports bettor who lost money and possibly the town of Tiverton as plaintiffs after the judge said yesterday that Harrop was not personally affected by the decision to legalize sports-betting last year.The case claimed sports-betting should have been approved by Rhode Island voters as a matter of following the state constitution.
