I. Nelson Rose quoted by Golf Magazine on $1 million fantasy golf payout

Golf Magazine, April 12, 2015


“For a very large fantasy sports web site that is attempting to build relationships with the professional sports lobby overall, it seems to be risky if not downright foolish to enter into a market for daily contests in a sport such as golf,” says Marc Edelman, who specializes in gaming law as an associate professor of law at the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College, City University of New York. “It would be so easy to combine two different golf tournaments together and to attempt to make a good-faith argument about multiple events. While no one has challenged this under the law to date, it seems to be a very easy fix to make. Not making that fix seems to subject certain companies in the industry to risk that others have wisely avoided.”

I. Nelson Rose, an expert on gaming laws and a professor at Whittier Law School in Costa Mesa, Calif., is less critical. “Usually I could have a pretty good gut feeling about these cases,” he said. “But in this case there really are pretty good arguments both ways.”
