After six years of litigation and three lower-court losses, the U.S. Supreme Court finally heard New Jersey’s request to overturn the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (“PASPA”) last week. Know as “the sports betting” case, Christie v. NCAA could dramatically change how Americans consume and wager on sports while also resulting in monumental commandeering and constitutional rulings from the nation’s highest court.
This is a case I have written extensively about for the past few years and even handicapped this summer. I still believe my 6-3 prediction will hold true, but now that argument has taken place, you can decide for yourselves. The Court will likely issue its ruling early this summer.
