In October of 2013, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine ordered the shutdown of electronic raffle machines at VFW posts and fraternal organizations, claiming the games were illegal gambling. Plaintiffs filed a lawsuit contending that the machines are a permissible form of charitable gaming. In December of 2013, a judge issued a temporary restraining order allowing the games to continue pending the outcome of the lawsuit. A trial date has been scheduled for June 16 in front of Judge Stephen McIntosh in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas.
