Sports Betting Legislation Overturned

Sports Betting Legislation Overturned

Monday, May 14, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned legislation (Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA) 28 U.S.C. § 3701 et seq.) prohibiting states from enacting laws to allow betting on sports events. Murphy v. National Collegiate Athletic An., 584 U. S. ____ (2018)  This law does not mean that sports gambling is immediately legal everywhere.  It means that individual states can exercise their state’s rights to pass laws allowing sports gambling pursuant to state court regulations.

Many experts predict that within several years more than half the states in the US will pass laws permitting sports gambling.  Literally within hours after the U.S. Supreme Court ruling, a law maker in Minnesota introduced a bill to make gambling based on competitive sporting events legal in Minnesota, effective that same day.
