The US Department of Justice will this week file its intention to join litigation launched by the national sports bodies opposing the state of New Jersey's year-old law allowing sports betting and defying the 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act.
U.S. District Court Judge Michael A. Shipp, in charge of the case, was asked in a filing on Tuesday to give a term until the end of next week to federal attorneys for responding to constitutional challenges made by New Jersey.
On the other hand, New Jersey's attorneys have argued in court papers that PASPA's provisions that prohibit sports gambling in all but four states are unconstitutional and discriminatory.
Only last month Judge Shipp denied the state's motion to throw out the lawsuit, and he scheduled the verbal arguments hearing for February 14.
