GTECH Files First Amended Plea to the Jurisdiction

GTECH Corporation filed its First Amended Plea to the Jurisdiction in the Fun 5’s lawsuit pending in Travis County, Texas.  GTECH alleges that it is immune from suit because it was merely doing what it was instructed to do by the Texas Lottery Commission.  Plaintiffs intend to show the court that it was GTECH, not the Lottery Commission, that decided to use the deceptive and misleading wording on the Fun 5’s tickets.  A hearing on the First Amended Plea to the Jurisdiction is scheduled for February 18, 2016 at 2:00 p.m.
