AGA releases statement on Supreme Court arguments on Christie versus NCAA

4 December 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- American Gaming Association (AGA) President and CEO Geoff Freeman issued the following statement following the Supreme Court's oral arguments, held Monday morning, on Christie versus National Collegiate Athletic Association. The Court's ruling on the case will determine the constitutionality of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA), which prohibits sports betting outside of Nevada and a handful of more regulated states:

"Today is a positive day for the millions of Americans seeking to legally wager on sporting events. While we can't predict the intentions of Supreme Court Justices, we can accurately predict the demise of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection of 1992 (PASPA). The justices of the Court expressed deep interest in the role of the federal government, a role that we believe has created a thriving illegal market that has driven trillions of dollars to offshore websites and corner bookies. States and tribal sovereign nations have proven to be effective regulators of gaming, and today's oral arguments before the Supreme Court moved them one giant step closer to offering a new product that Americans demand."
