In the aftermath of the Supreme Court action in NJ case – what options the leagues and US sports sector have to be ready for all possible scenarios


In an unexpected move, the US Supreme Court, against the recommendation of the Solicitor General, agreed to hear the arguments in the New Jersey challenge to PASPA. This opens the doors to a possible repeal of PASPA and an arrival of sports betting regulation and roll-out across the country sooner than many expected.

The leagues have long opposed the legalization of sports betting, in particular in the state model, advocated by New Jersey. Re-affirmed by the multiple court decisions against New Jersey, the Supreme Court action surely came as a surprise.
