Dan Etna, co-chair of Herrick's Sports Law Group was quoted in Bloomberg Law's article on whether a Fantasy Sports Battle in New York Could Be Boon for New Jersey. As the article notes, a New York appellate court ruled that sports fantasy sports betting is illegal in New York, which could potentially drive fantasy sports fans and fantasy sports companies to New Jersey, where regulated sports betting is legal. Etna noted that he "doesn’t think DraftKings and FanDuel will leave New York. But they might have to 'think outside the appeal box' and mount a public campaign to amend the state’s constitution instead."
