Professor I. Nelson Rose quoted by USA Today on New Jersey sports betting issue

USA Today, September 11, 2014


Professor I. Nelson Rose was quoted by USA Today in an article about New Jersey attorney general’s directive that the state would not prosecute sports betting establishments, despite them still being illegal under federal law.

“I can’t see any state following Christie’s lead on this,” says I. Nelson Rose, professor of law at Whittier Law School. “Basically, it is really quite bizarre for a governor to tell the regulated casinos and racetracks, ‘Well, we won’t enforce our anti-gambling laws and you should just go ahead and commit major federal felonies.’ I can’t imagine a federal prosecutor would agree with that interpretation. The only redeeming quality is he at least appears to be asking a federal judge to give a stamp of approval on this.”
