SALEM, Ore. (AP) - The chair of the Oregon Lottery Commission is stepping down after her law firm filed a lawsuit against the lottery.

Elisa Dozono’s resignation takes effect next week, and Brown has a month to appoint a replacement.

Dozono is a partner in the law firm Miller Nash Graham & Dunn. The firm represents a business owner who is suing the lottery over its attempt to remove video lottery machines from his restaurant on Hayden Island in Portland.

Dozono has chaired the lottery commission since 2012. Gov. Kate Brown says she’ll try to appoint Dozono to a different position “so that Oregon may continue to benefit from her talents and dedication.”
