Miomni urges court to dismiss Delaware North lawsuit

19 July 2019

Sports betting software provider Miomni Gaming has hit back in its legal battle with Delaware North, saying claims by the US casino operator that it breached the terms of a joint venture agreement are entirely without merit.

Delaware North filed a lawsuit in April accusing its former joint venture partner and its chief executive, Michael Venner, of engaging in “an ongoing pattern of misrepresentation and bad faith” throughout the partnership.

In its response to Delaware North suit, Miomni says that its claims “fail in their entirety” for three key reasons.

Firstly, Miomni argues that Delaware North has failed to demonstrate that it is guilty of any breaches of contractual terms set out in its original filing.

Miomni also said the US court lacks personal jurisdiction over Venner, who is a citizen of the UK and has had no contacts with Delaware. Finally, the supplier said that the claims of fraud fail as they do not specify exact incidents or events that constitute such illegal activity, and are based on statements made by third parties.
