3rd Circ. to Take Another Shot at Sports Betting Guidance

October 14, 2015 – Media Mention

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.
