The Third Circuit Court of Appeals has set the schedule for state and league brief submission in the New Jersey sports betting case, according to John Brennan of NorthJersey.com.
The state had originally sought 24 days to file, then give the leagues 17 days to file their response, and finally 10 days for the states' counter-response.
The sports leagues suggested 24 days for the state, but 30 days for the league and 10 days for the state to counter.
The judge settled on keeping the original 24 days, then give the leagues 24 days to file, and seven days for the state to file their counter-response.
The court’s ruling Friday could signal a willingness to push this to court a little more quickly than some legal experts have expected. Legal experts had previously projected the Appellate Court won’t even have issued a ruling by the time the Super Bowl comes to the Meadowlands on Feb. 2, 2014.
Here are some of the key due dates in the case:
- April 29: due date for state brief.
- May 23: due date for league response.
- May 30: due date for states' counter-response.
