It just doesn't seem like equal justice under the law to me.
Justice has nothing to do with it. You could call it your right - but you are really stretching it. No one is impeding your right to play online any more than they are impeding anyone elses. So it is non-discriminatory. Yeah we would like to think it is a violation of your rights since we all want our online poker back, but I'd hate to see you waste time and energy on a fight you just cannot win.
But like OZ, the other poster says - if the local B&M (or Pub) has not made accomodations for you then you probably (hell, no probably about it) have an ADA violation case to make.
