Evidence hearing set for lawsuit filed against NHCSO, District Attorney's Office

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The District Attorney's Office and the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office were both served with a lawsuit Wednesday, according to DA Ben David.

The suit was filed by Attorney Tommy Hicks on behalf of Louis G. Enterprises, the company owns Capitol One Reward Zones, a business that was raided by New Hanover Sheriff's Office Deputies back in July.

Deputies took more than $2,000 in cash and more than 40 machines as evidence.

The company claims their business was in compliance with the new law that bans sweepstakes parlors in New Hanover County, they claim they should not have been raided and among other things are asking for a sum in excess of $20,000 for alleged violation of both their federal and state constitutional rights.

During an emergency motions hearing on Thursday, the company asked the judge to approve a restraining order that would prevent deputies from stopping activities at Capitol One Reward Zone. The judge did not agree to that request, and said that he would put the case in front of a Superior Court Judge on Monday, August 26.

The District Attorney, Ben David, says he understands all of the evidence has to be looked through, and looks forward to presenting the case in front of a full court of law.
