Professor I. Nelson Rose quoted in OC Register about California’s next move on daily fantasy sports

Orange County Register, January 4, 2016


Interpretations of relevant California law are not exactly clear-cut, given the sheer complexity of state gambling statutes. But the lodestar of the industry’s legal argument – that daily fantasy is a game of skill – might not be much of an impediment in the state, according to I. Nelson Rose, a gaming expert and professor of law at Whittier College.

Rose says the existence of a learning curve for daily fantasy players – a major sticking point for operators – would be enough to prove that skill serves a “predominant purpose.” The test alleges that chance can play a part, but must not outweigh skill. Under the same requirements in Massachusetts, the attorney general’s office ruled daily fantasy legal.
