The Hesse Administrative Court charged with reviewing the German Interstate Treaty on Gambling has accelerated its review process in order to call for the treaty to be re-written.

Over a week ago, the regional parliament in Hesse passed a resolution calling for the treaty to be reformed. The addition of the Administrative Court’s support should prove to be a sufficient catalyst to provoke politicians in other German regions to begin work on the necessary reforms.

“The Hessian Administrative Court has now smashed the State Treaty on Gambling,” announced the Hesse Court Speaker, according to a report in SBC News.
