The State government on Wednesday informed the Madras High Court that it has passed a Bill concerning the ban on online games and online gambling, in view of which the petitions challenging the government's ordinance on the issue may be infructuous.

The High Court Bench of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy, however, has kept the petitions pending and allowed the petitioners (online rummy companies) to challenge the Act once it has been assented to by the Tamil Nadu Governor.
