NFL, MLB, NHL SUE NJ OVER GAMBLING

In January, Governor Chris Christie signed a law which would allow aports betting at state racetracks and Atlantic City. The NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA and NCAA recently filed a lawsuit in the federal court district of New Jersey.

The lawsuit alleges that the NJ law allowing sports wagering violates the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992, which imposes a broad ban on sports gambling. According to that law, all states had a set window of time to adopt and legalize sports gambling. That window has been closed for 18 years. According to the lawsuit, those states that chose not to legalize sports wagering, including New Jersey, would be barred from legalizing at any point in the future.

THE FOREGOING IS A GENERAL DISCUSSION OF THE LAW AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED TO BE LEGAL ADVICE. IF YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC QUESTION, PLEASE CONTACT OUR OFFICE AND SPEAK TO AN ATTORNEY
