The U.S. Court of Appeals this month upheld a U.S. District Court's ruling that the state should not have collected millions of dollars from the estate of the bankrupt account-deposit wagering outlet Racing Services Inc.
The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said it will not review its decision to overturn the case against Susan Bala, the founder of Racing Services Inc. who was convicted in 2005 of illegal gambling.
A federal appeals court has overturned the conviction of Susan Bala, who was sentenced to prison in 2005 in connection with charges related to operation of her Racing Services Inc. simulcast company in North Dakota.
A few days after a federal judge denied granting her a new trial, Susan Bala, the founder and former president of North Dakota's Racing Services Inc., reported to prison Sept. 30 to begin serving a 27-month sentence.
U.S. District Court Judge Ralph Erickson says he will stick to an Aug. 23 trial date for Racing Services Inc., even though three of the four defendants don't have lawyers.
A North Dakota judge has been asked by state Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem to dismiss the Racing Services Inc. bankruptcy case filed by owner Susan Bala because the wagering-company was under the control of a state-appointed receiver at the time of the filing.
