Appeal board approves TouchPlay claim

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- The State Appeal Board has approved a 150,000 dollar claim against the state and the Iowa Lottery Authority. It's over the state's ban on TouchPlay lottery games in 2006.

The board approved the settlement of a lawsuit filed in Floyd County in 2008 that claimed the state's ban caused financial harm to businesses.

It was one of many cases seeking about 900 million dollars in damages over the state's decision.

Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller says the settlement saves the state substantial money over its potential liability over TouchPlay.
