The Garden State's fight against the major sports leagues in the U.S. that began way back in 2012 got a rare glimpse of hope on Tuesday, when the U.S. Supreme Court announced it will hear New Jersey's appeal in its case to bring above-board sports betting to its casinos and racetracks. The court made a decision to accept the state's appeal even after the Trump administration urged the justices not to get involved. The casino industry, after a period of job losses and closings, has lately been doing better. Supporters of New Jersey's efforts see it as a states' rights issue. "During football season, the NCAA tournament, the World Cup, people will be flocking to Atlantic City to bet on them".
The cert petition argues the case could have implications on the power of the states to authorize private conduct now banned by state law, including recreational use of marijuana, carrying concealed firearms and working on Sundays.
The justices will review a lower court's conclusion that the measure runs afoul of a 1992 federal law that outlaws sports gambling in most of the country. "The Supreme Court's decision today is welcome news", said Joe Asher, the CEO of William Hill US, which has over 100 sports betting locations in Nevada. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver called for the nationwide legalization and regulation of sports wagering in 2014, and MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said this year that his league was reconsidering its opposition to sports betting.
The court made a decision to take up the case even though the Trump administration urged the justices not to hear Christie's appeal. It closed last October under the ownership of fellow billionaire Carl Icahn, who sold it in March to Hard Rock International.
The case has lasted almost as long as Christie has been in office.
