Ladbrokes wants Swedish judges replaced

British betting and gaming company Ladbrokes has plans to open betting shops in Sweden but has not been able to realise these due to the restrictions of the Swedish gaming monopoly.

Ladbrokes has appealed against a ruling that the monopoly does not violate European regulations and the case is to be heard by the Swedish Supreme Administrative Court shortly.

The betting company has now demanded that three of the five judges in the Court be replaced since they are not impartial.
