NJ Sports Betting Case: Appeals Court Decision Sept. 17, 2013

Betting on sports is an activity that has unarguably increased in popularity over the last several decades.

They contend, alongside the United States as intervening plaintiff, that New Jersey’s proposed law violates a federal law that prohibits most states from licensing sports gambling, the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA), 28 U.S.C. § 3701 et seq.

Let’s just say WEG’s president and CEO isn’t onside with any of those ideas floated in the Horse Racing Industry Transition Panel’s draft report (see highlights p. 16) to create a sustainable industry in Ontario in the wake of the 2012 decision to cancel the wildly-successful Slots at Racetracks Program.
