PostSubject: About fucking time: Supreme Court decision could pave the way for legal sports betting   Mon May 14, 2018 8:23 pm

The Supreme Court has handed down a ruling that very well may pave the way for legalization of sports betting across the U.S.



In a 6-3 decision made on Monday, members of SCOTUS struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA). The 1992 law had previously prohibited states from sponsoring, operating, advertising, promoting, licensing, or authorizing sports gambling.

However, the panel ultimately ruled that PASPA violated the anti-commandeering rule, which bars the federal government from forcing state governments to act against their own will.

“Congress can regulate sports gambling directly, bit if it elects not to do so, each State is free to act on its own,” said Justice Samuel Alito. “Our job is to interpret the law Congress has enacted and decide whether it is consistent with the Constitution. PASPA is not.”
