TRENTON – Professional sports leagues suing the state over New Jersey’s push to legalize gambling will learn Friday whether their lawsuit can move forward.
U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp told attorneys representing the leagues and the state of New Jersey that he will rule whether the lawsuit can proceed by Friday.
“I believe that this is the kind of decision that warrants a written decision,” Shipp said after hearing about two hours of oral arguments.
The arguments were in response to the NCAA and the four major professional sport leagues’ lawsuit against the administration in an effort to challenge the state’s fight to bring sports betting to the state.
Shipp is set to decide whether the lawsuit against the state can proceed.
