New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is vowing to press his state's sports betting law to the Supreme Court after the law was shot down by another federal appeals court.
Christie told the Boomer and Carton show on Wednesday that he plans to appeal to the Supreme Court, challenging the whether the law is constitutional or not. Various appeals courts have ruled that New Jersey's sports betting bill violates the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, which makes sportsbetting illegal in all but a handful of states. Christie contends that PASPA is unconstitutional as it gives certain states rights that others aren't entitled to.
It appears that the appeal could be a longshot, but if the case is picked up, it will be interesting to see how the justices rule.
