In the lawsuit, the D.C. election's board asked the court to enforce its July 29, 2005 fine against the pro-gambling initiative sponsors. The fine was related to the conduct of a petition drive to qualify the Video Lottery Terminal Initiative (2004) for the D.C. ballot.
On September 19, 2007, the election board settled the lawsuit with sponsors of the initiative. Under the terms of the settlement, the pro-initiative group was required to pay a $75,000 contribution divided equally between the League of Women Voters of the District of Columbia and Rock the Vote.
