New Jersey Sportsbetting Appeal Inches Closer to Supreme Court

This story was published more than 5 years ago.

New Jersey's attempt to get their sportsbetting legalization appeal in front of the Supreme Court is inching closer to being heard, as the US Solicitor General paged the parties involved to give them a status update.

The meeting is a sign that the case is advancing to the Supreme Court, where the Garden State will argue that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act is unconstitutional, as it grants some states the right to offer sportsbetting while excluding the others. New Jersey has voted on and legalized sportsbetting within their borders but has been sued by the federal government as well as major professional sports leagues to keep them from implementing the law.

The meeting is scheduled for April 10th, and Casino Listings will be updating the story as we learn more.
