New Jersey, the garden state announced that they have filed a case to the US Supreme Court of Justice in order to legalize online sports betting in their state. If this was to be legalized by the US Supreme Court New Jersey would be able to offer all forms of online gambling in their state. This in return would make them the online gambling hub within all of the USA.
New Jersey voters have always voted to legalize online sportsbetting within the borders of their state except the last two times that New Jersey tried to legalize online gambling the federal courts declined their case. The US Supreme Court of Justice noted that only four states can offer legalized online sportsbetting and those four positions have been filled.
New Jersey asked two important questions to the Supreme Court and these two questions were, Doesn’t the Amateur and Professional Sports Protection Act go against the authority that we have as a state and go against the tenth amendment? The second question was, Doesn’t granting permission to only four states go against the principal of equal rights in our country?
The Federal Government in the past has ruled that New Jersey was able to offer legal online sports betting but declined to take on that form of gambling due to the time frame they had to follow for the legal online gambling they offer right now.
We are unsure as to what the US Supreme Court of Justice will rule in this online sportsbetting case.
