New Jersey files for expedition in sports betting lawsuit

A Joint Motion to Expedite has been filed by the state of New Jersey and its intervenors, according to John Brennan of NorthJersey.com.

The 13-page filing seeks to expedite to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia.

The NCAA and the big four sports leagues had filed a suit looking to prevent New Jersey from legalizing a law that would permit sports gambling in the state.

The filing by the defendants - state officials and the Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association - makes reference to economic and state budget issues and a measure to save the horse racing industry in the state of New Jersey.

"By expediting the appeal, the Court would further the interests of the people of the State of New Jersey both in promoting regulated sports wagering — with significant economic and fiscal benefits for the State — and in suppressing the existing, unregulated sports-wagering market.”

The main argument of the defendants is that the federal law barring sports wagering is unconstitutional and that the federal government is forcing a state to take action against its will.

seems to me an expedition a good idea. regarding the last case w/judge sh!* (excuse me, shipp), federals just sit on their *ss and asked for an extension then waited until the last day. Why? Because they don't care nearly as much as New Jersey does about this, plus they're incompetent.
