The Law and Ethics of Legal Sports Gambling in New York
February 9 at 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm EST
About the Program
The federal legislation known as The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA) outlawed sports betting throughout the United States except in Nevada, Oregon, Delaware and Montana. In 2018, after years of frustration among other states that wanted to legalize sports gambling within their borders, the US Supreme Court overturned PASPA – holding that the PASPA violated the anti-commandeering doctrine of the 10th Amendment. This decision opened the doors for many other states to begin licensing sports gambling operators.
Last month, New York became the latest state to legalize online sports gambling – a decision that has been praised by libertarians and sports gambling operators alike but criticized by many other groups. Join the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity on Wednesday February 9 at 12:30 PM as Baruch College law professor Marc Edelman leads a discussion on the law and ethics of legal sports gambling in New York with Professor John Holden of Oklahoma State University, Professor Keith Miller of Drake University, Alicia Jessop of Pepperdine University and Jim Maney, Executive Director of the New York Council on Problem Gambling.
