Injunction to Halt Gambling Rejected

A Kentucky Court of Appeals panel declined Wednesday to approve an injunction halting instant racing at Kentucky Downs in Franklin. The Family Foundation had asked for the court to halt instant racing games at the Franklin facility until it decided upon an appeal. The foundation contends that instant racing is illegal in Kentucky. The decision, issued by judges Glenn Acree, Janet Stumbo and Denise Clayton, said allowing the games to continue until a final decision is reached won’t harm the foundation.
