The U.S. Department of Justice, fresh off of receiving an extension in its fight against legalized sports betting in New Jersey, could receive another extension after appellate attorney Scott McIntosh was injured in a bicycle accident, according to John Brennan of NorthJersey.com.
The DOJ, along with the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL and the NCAA, is scheduled to file its brief on May 28, with New Jersey slated to reply on June 7. The DOJ now wants to push the dates until June 7 for its filing and June 14 for the response.
The State said it would accept an extension until June 3, with the reply date of June 12.
Either way, it's getting a bit more difficult to hold onto the scheduled June 26 oral argument date.
