Our view: AG's office owes community, family answers on Lucky 7s

(Continued)

But it seems Lucky 7’s owners are primarily snagged in disputes over a poorly written state law and an AG’s office bent on using it to crack down on any form of even recreational gambling while, of course, leaving the Lottery intact.

Yes, the Legislature should clarify this law and its wording when it returns to session. But in the meantime, the AG’s office should either file charges and get on with the case or free the Parisis and their customers to return to the Lucky 7s.

It’s time to bring this hostage stalemate to a close.
