Supreme Court will hear sports betting case

Sandy Vega | 28 June, 2017, 02:58

Legalized sports wagering in New Jersey has been supported by Monmouth Park, which is operated by the state's horsemen under a lease from the state.

New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, a Democrat, said in a statement that he hopes the Supreme Court will rule in favor of the state after the case is heard this fall.

New Jersey enacted the law in 2014 after an earlier version was struck down in court. The case is set to be argued in the fall. Christie signed follow-up legislation in January 2012, and that spring, New Jersey gaming officials put forth regulations for state-sponsored sportsbooks.

A resolution isn't likely in the case until 2018.

How did we get here?

A final ruling probably won't come until August, 2018.

Will court hear betting case?

Single-game wagering is generally prohibited under a federal law, the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, which was passed in 1992.

New Jersey did have a chance to be grandfathered into sports betting like Nevada was, but the state failed to do so in time before PASPA went into effect. Sports law attorney Daniel Wallach wrote the timeline for Legal Sports Report.

The Supreme Court also declined to take up Binderup v. Sessions, a case that will now let stand a ruling that found individuals convicted of certain nonviolent misdemeanor crimes do not lose their right to keep and bear arms. These are referred to as "merits briefs". (For example, this is where I would expect to see the equal sovereignty argument-e.g., the preferential treatment given to Nevada and three other states, to the exclusion of the other 46 states-play a more important role going forward). The Florida Supreme Court literally said that it did not care what the US Supreme Court said about Open Carry being the right guaranteed by the Constitution and concealed carry not being a right under the Second Amendment.

In PEM Entities LLC v. Levin [SCOTUSblog materials] the court will determine whether bankruptcy courts should apply a federal rule of decision or a state law rule of decision when deciding to recharacterize a debt claim in bankruptcy as a capital contribution.

Artificial insemination cases raise even more hard issues. Under this tentative schedule, the reply brief would be due on October 14. "The court does that all the time".

"This case isn't about cakes - it's about people being turned away from a business simply because of who they are", said James Esseks, head of the LGBT & HIV Project for the ACLU, according to BuzzFeed News.

In addition to the 9th Circuit, federal appeals courts have upheld similar restrictive "good reason" requirements in New Jersey, New York and Maryland. Usually SCOTUS follows the recommendation of the SG, but NJ defied the odds once again.
