Supreme Court taking up New Jersey sports betting case

The billions spent on legal sports betting monopoly in Las Vegas is in jeopardy after New Jersey Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey challenged a federal law that requires states wagering on sporting events, though Nevada was grandfathered in when the law was passed in 1992, NBC News reported.
The case pits New Jersey and other states against all four major USA professional sports leagues, the NCAA and the federal government.
New Jersey tried to pass a new law in 2014 that simply repealed key provisions of its prohibitions on sports wagering to the extent they applied at racetracks and casinos.
More than a dozen states are supporting New Jersey, which is arguing that Congress exceeded its authority when it passed a 1992 law that keeps states from authorizing sports betting.

New Jersey argues that under the 10th Amendment, the federal government can not require the state to maintain its own prohibitions on sports wagering.
Experts believe sports betting is a $150 billion per year illegal industry.
"PASPA is a direct command to the states without any effort to regulate sports wagering", Olson told the justices. At the time, New Jersey could have allowed sports wagering if it had acted within a year of the law's effective date, but New Jersey chose not to.
New Jersey wants to overturn PASPA, which makes it unlawful for governmental entities to sponsor, operate, advertise, promote, licence or authorise betting, gambling or wagering schemes that are based on games played by amateur or professional athletes. In passing the law, Congress gave New Jersey a yearlong window to authorize sports betting at its casinos, but the state didn't act.
Deputy Solicitor General Jeffrey Wall, also defending the law, said that Olson's assertion that federal law can preempt state law only when the federal government promulgates a comprehensive regulatory scheme is "a made-up principle". It lost again in court.
Not a word was spoken-or a question asked-during the arguments about the potential consequences of striking down the law, namely the expansion of sports gambling across the nation. But the justices could also uphold it, leaving in place the status quo, or rule narrowly that what New Jersey did didn't violate the law.
Robert A. Mikos, a professor of law at Vanderbilt University Law School, has signed a friend-of-the-court brief in support of New Jersey and says the case could have far-reaching implications if the justices agree with Christie.
"We're like boy scouts, we're prepared, we're prepared in New Jersey and we're ready to go", he added. A ruling is expected in June.
