Supreme Court ruling opens door for legalized sports gambling nationwide

Supreme Court ruling opens door for legalized sports gambling nationwide Supreme Court ruling opens door for legalized sports gambling nationwide

The ruling came from a case in New Jersey which has fought for years to legalize gambling on sports at casinos and racetracks in the state. AGA conservatively estimates $150 billion is wagered by Americans on sports each year, and only $4.5 billion of that wagered legally in Nevada.

This gives states the go-ahead to legalize betting on sports. Nevada was exempted from the law, and three other states - Montana, Delaware, and OR - that had already enacted sports lotteries were allowed to continue to do so.

In 1992, Congress passed the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), which prohibited state-sanctioned sports gambling. New Jersey said the Constitution allows Congress to pass laws barring wagering on sports, but Congress can't require states to keep sports gambling prohibitions in place. It simply prohibits sports betting in the states.

Either ruling could start legal sports gambling in New Jersey within two weeks of the ruling.

The Supreme Court ruled by overwhelming majority on Monday that PASPA violated the Tenth Amendment, which restricts the federal government from imposing legislation that outlaws states from enacting laws individually.

Mississippi - Gaming Commission Deputy Director Jay McDaniel has previously stated that the state would need a few months to propose regulations and have them approved following a Supreme Court decision, but that implementation before the end of 2018 would be feasible.

They called New Jersey's law a threat to the integrity of competition, fearing game-fixing and other types of cheating.

New Jersey residents first approve a referendum to legalize sports betting in the state in November 2011. The state is denied in June 2014.

In response, New Jersey requests and is subsequently granted an en banc hearing in October 2015.

New Jersey files second appeal to U.S. Supreme Court in October 2016.

This is a developing story.
