High Court Sports-Bet Ruling Spurs Fantasy Sport Expansion

May 16, 2018 Media Mentions

In the wake of the Supreme Court's May 14, 2018 ruling striking down a 1992 law that made sports gambling illegal in most states, Rob Laplaca offered his thoughts on the potential impact of this decision on fantasy sports such as DraftKings in a Bloomberg BNA article entitled "High Court Sports-Bet Ruling Spurs Fantasy Sport Expansion." Rob opines that the Supreme Court's decision to strike down the 1992 law could lead to legalization of fantasy sports in states in which it is not currently legal.
