Amicus Brief Filed with U.S. Supreme Court in New Jersey Sports Betting Case, Christie vs. NCAA.

In early September, iDEA was a party to an amicus brief filed with the United States Supreme Court in the case of Christie vs. NCAA, the New Jersey sports betting case whose outcome is expected to have a significant impact on the gaming industry in this country and upon the issues of states’ rights generally.

In this filing we challenge the constitutionality of the law called The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (“PASPA”), which outlaws sports betting in all of the states except four. Our membership is committed to allowing all communities seeking to broaden their revenue and employment opportunities the right to welcome the gaming industry under rational regulation.
