Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 17, 2015
“I am truly honored to once again be included in this prestigious annual report, amongst such distinguished colleagues,” said Cory, who is also a founder of the International Masters of Gaming Law and an adjunct professor of Gaming Law at the John Marshall Law School. “Accolades such as these inspire me to be the best lawyer I can.”
After serving as legal counsel to the Illinois Gaming Board, Cory developed a practice concentrating on commercial gambling. Representing dozens of operators of video gambling devices and hundreds of bars, taverns, veterans and fraternal locations, he has been instrumental in the development of law and policy related to gambling and alternatives to gambling.
In 2013, Cory worked with the Illinois Gaming Board and the Illinois legislature to amend the video gambling act to exempt activities that are not considered to be gambling under the criminal code. As a result, electronic product promotion kiosks are now a lawful option for many businesses in the state. The clarification in the statute has also led to municipalities passing ordinances related to electronic sweepstakes and generating revenue for local governments.
“Illinois has a strong public policy against illegal gambling and has developed a significant regulatory structure to maintain the integrity of gambling activities,” said Cory. “However, the criminal code and video gambling statute specifically allows for electronic sweepstakes when conducted in a specific manner.”
