US Supreme Court is Listening; Sports Betting USA 2017 Can Unify the VoicePublished July 22, 2017 by Lee R
Sports Betting USA is now the place to start preparing for regulated online betting.
In what amounted to a stunning late turn of events, the Supreme Court agreed to hear New Jersey’s arguments in a sports betting case that has been raging across years of bitter Garden State opposition to the Professional and Amateur Professional Sports Act (PASPA).
Scheduled for November 14-15 in New York City, Sports Betting USA conference will provide a forum for professional sports leagues and team owners to review their new wealth of potential options.
Supreme’s Surprise Reversal
The Supreme Court rebuked the U.S. Solicitor General’s recommendation not to consider the case, paving the way for renewed optimism from sports betting advocates to spur the sports industry to review its options in the vent of a New Jersey win.
Timing Couldn’t Be Better
With Sports Betting USA announced over a month ago, the dates now become the perfect time and place for sports owners to address all questions about the integrity of sports and doubts about sports betting with should the federal Supreme Court overturn PASPA NS allow legal decisions on sports betting to fall to individual state governments.
Among experts confirmed for Sports Betting USA 2017 are UK Gambling Commission Executive Director Nick Tofiluk; Nevada Gaming Control Chief of Enforcement Karl Bennison; ESPN’s NFL Business Analyst Andrew Brandt; and Nielsen Sports Senior Vice President Stephen Master.
One speaker at the conference was not surprised, but prepared, calling the stakes “increased” at this year’s Sports Betting USA conference. Having successfully predicted the Supreme Court’s action, Daniel Wallach asserted that the conference “couldn’t be happening at a better time as the leagues...now have to quickly map out a strategy that will allow them to come out of this battle with a win.”
In terms of iGaming legislation, the Supreme Court’s break with federal policy to hear New Jersey’s arguments looks like the biggest victory of all. No matter what the arguments are, the federal courts are listening.
