Update: New Jersey Appeals Court Decision in Sports Betting Litigation

As announced, New Jersey governor Chris Christie and his officials have filed notice to appeal the court's decision against the state's attempt to legalise intrastate sports betting and challenge the Professional and Amateur Protection Sports Betting Act.

The appeal, which is supported by New Jersey Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association has been filed with the Third Circuit Courts of Appeal in Philadelphia.

The officials announced their readiness to go all the way up to the US Supreme Court with their case if the appeal fails here.

And this could easily happen, according to Gabriel Feldman, director of the sports law program at Tulane University, who assessed: 'The odds are the final outcome will be the same as the outcome in the district court. It was clear from the beginning this was an uphill battle for New Jersey and the courts would give great deference to federal law.'

Still, since it is the constitutionality of the restrictive and discriminatory PASPA that is being debated, there may still be chance for the New Jersey case.
