New Jersey Sportsbetting Supreme Court Case Delayed

New Jersey's appeal to overturn a law that limits sportsbetting to just a handful of states has seen a delay, as the Supreme Court has extended a deadline to submit a case until May 14th.

The case was delayed because of a slow response by the US Department of Justice and major sporting leagues in getting their response in to the court. As it stands now, the parties will not know whether the Supreme Court will take up the case until September.

New Jersey is attempting to have the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act repealed on the grounds that it only allows for a few states to offer legal sportsbetting, which it contends is unconstitutional.

Voters in the Garden State voted to approve of legal sportsbetting, but major sports leagues and the federal government immediately sued, and federal courts have since overturned the law, stating that it violates PAPSA.
