Update on New Jersey Sports Betting Litigation
The on-going litigation involving New Jersey's plans to allow licensed sports books recently picked up steam. Multiple pleadings (with dozens of exhibits attached thereto) were filed last week. In the course of finishing up a 30,000+ word law review article that is tangentially related to the lawsuit, I pored through hundreds of pages of documents from the case. My review was revealing (despite the extensive redaction). I shared some of my thoughts a couple of days ago with David Purdum of SportingNews. A portion of our discussion can be found here. Oral arguments on the standing issue take place on December 18.
