The plaintiffs in the Fun 5’s lawsuit pending in Travis County have filed their Response to GTECH’s 1st Amended Plea to the Jurisdiction. In essence, the plaintiffs argue that GTECH is not entitled to “derivative sovereign immunity” because it exercised independent discretion when it decided to use wording on the Fun 5’s tickets that misrepresented that players would “win” if their tickets revealed a Money Bag symbol. A hearing on the Plea to the Jurisdiction is set for hearing in Travis County on Thursday, February 18, 2016 at 2 p.m. The results of the hearing will be posted here tomorrow.
