Hilary Schultz represented the trade group POWAAH (Protection of Working Animals and Handlers, Inc.), who were the kennel owners that kenneled greyhound dogs prior to the banning of greyhound racing in Massachusetts. Legislation had been passed creating a Racing Stabilization Fund to compensate the kennel owners and others for loss of income following the banning of greyhound racing. The Massachusetts Gaming Commission took the position that the creation of the stabilization fund to compensate the kennel owners ended the Commonwealth’s obligation to pay kennel owners the “Outs” (i.e. money sent to the Commonwealth by racetracks on uncollected successful wagers) for races held in 2008 and 2009 prior to the banning of greyhound racing. Attorney Schultz negotiated with the Gaming Commission, who subsequently agreed to pay POWAAH $501,323.93 in 2008 “Outs” money without a waiver (upon which the Commonwealth had previously insisted) of its claims to 2009 “Outs” money. Attorney Schultz sued the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to pay POWAAH a further $439,638.05 (i.e. the amount of the unpaid 2009 “Outs”), arguing that the creation of the Racing Stabilization Fund did not repeal the laws that previously had required the payment of “Outs” money to the kennel owners. The Business Litigation Session of the Massachusetts Superior Court ordered the payment of the $439,638.05 to POWAAH.
