3rd Circ. to Take Another Shot at Sports Betting Guidance
Dan Etna was quoted in Law360 on the broader implications of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit's decision to rehear the case challenging a New Jersey state law permitting sports gambling at racetracks and casinos. "I think that there may just be a recognition by the Third Circuit that there are many other states looking at what is going on in New Jersey, and it is a topic that deserves greater scrutiny and hopefully some sort of consensus," sports law attorney Dan Etna of Herrick Feinstein LLP said. Dan said that given the high-profile nature of the parties with the Big Four sports leagues, and because it involves an interpretation of how a federal law restricts a state, the case may be prime for the U.S. Supreme Court.
