Nevada oddsmakers cheer top-court review of N.J. sports betting case


Greg Gemignani (Member, Las Vegas) was quoted in the Las Vegas Sun article on "Nevada oddsmakers cheer top-court review of N.J. sportsbetting case".
 
The article focuses on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to hear a case against a law preventing legalizing sports gambling in New Jersey. The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act prohibited sports betting across the country, except in Nevada, Montana, and Delaware. The Supreme Court decided to hear New Jersey’s challenge to a 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision that used the protection act as justification to kill a sports betting law Gov. Chris Christie approved in 2014.  “If it falls, you’ll have two lobbying groups,” Greg said. “One will be people from the gaming side who say we should be able to take wagers on sports. And then we will have the flip side, led by the NCAA and I think the NFL, the only pro league adamantly opposed to sports wagering.”

Greg Gemignani's practice focuses primarily on intellectual property law, gaming law, technology law, internet law, online gaming law, and online promotions law.
