Justices to review New Jersey bid for legal sports betting

NJ sports betting New Jersey Gets US Supreme Court Hearing on Sports-Gambling Bid
Preston Stone | 29 June, 2017, 09:00

The Supreme Court today announced that it would hear New Jersey's appeal on legalized sports betting in the state.

Courts have voided two New Jersey laws, also including one in 2012, created to raise revenue for state coffers through sports betting. Nevada is now the only state where single-game wagering is legal.

Nevada and the other states were grandfathered in under the immunity clause when PASPA was first passed.

Hills are already big in Nevada, handling almost 30 per cent of sports betting in the state after merging three small sports books and rebranding them under the Hills banner.

The justices will review a ruling a year ago that the 2014 New Jersey statute permitting betting at casinos and race tracks violated a 1992 federal law that prohibits such gambling in all states except Nevada, where William Hill has a strong presence. Former U.S. Senator Bill Bradley is among those who have come out in opposition to legalized sports gambling in his home state. The case is likely to be heard some time this fall.

Freeman sidestepped the issue of whether Congress has the bandwidth for a sports betting debate and said a court decision could increase the chance of Congress holding hearings on issue, which is something the gaming association has been preparing for.

New Jersey, with support from Governor Chris Christie, approached the Supreme Court to hear an appeal that its law violated the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA).

But the five major sports leagues are against it.

"That will enable sports betting to be enjoyed by millions of Americans". United States (1992), Justice Sandra Day O'Connor found that a federal waste-management law "would "commandeer" state governments into the service of federal regulatory purposes, and would for this reason be inconsistent with the Constitution's division of authority between federal and state governments". "I believe the court took this case to decide whether PASPA is constitutional". "I'm encouraged by it". We're not declaring victory, but at least we're in the game.

The case largely revolves around states' rights issues, in particular where the line should be drawn when it comes to states making their own laws versus having to adhere to federal laws. We are pleased the Supreme Court appears to have responded favorably to our arguments as to why they should hear this important case. The NCAA and National Football League remain opposed to expanding legal sports betting, and the NHL has mostly remained quiet on the prospect in recent years.
