Miomni responds to Delaware lawsuit

Tech supplier Miomni urged a Delaware court to drop the lawsuit against them that Delaware North filed back in April.

US.- In April, Delaware North informed the West Virginia Lottery Commission that it would terminate its partnership with Miomni Gaming. The casino operator wanted to launch its sports betting operation in the state but faced hurdles with its tech partner. After that, it filed a lawsuit against the company to seek compensation from the company and its CEO after failing to launch by March Madness.

Back then, the casinos’ owner explained its technology platform provider (Miomni Gaming) “encountered a contract dispute with a third-party technology supplier.” That forced them to suspend their operations in both Wheeling Island and Mardi Gras casinos.

However, as the Delaware Chancery Court assesses the lawsuit, Miomni has fired back ad Delaware North. They assure that claims against them are without merit and “fail in their entirety.”

According to the tech supplier, its partner couldn’t demonstrate any breaches of original contractual terms. Furthermore, they stated that there’s a jurisdiction issue with the court and its CEO, Michael Venner, a UK citizen. Also, Miomni says Delaware North’s claims of fraud are based on third parties’ comments and don’t mention specific incidents or events.

Delaware North’s actions

After a contract dispute prevented it from taking advantage of March Madness, operator Delaware North is suing partner Miomni Gaming.

The casino operator had its two casinos sitting out of the NCAA basketball tournament due to the dispute. That’s why it decided to sue both its tech partner and Mr Venner.

According to Delaware North, Miomni misrepresented its ownership of a key part of the sports betting platform. Such a conflict had the company sitting out of a multi-million dollar opportunity.
