Professor I. Nelson Rose quoted by Law360 on New Jersey gambling law decision

Law360, August 25, 2015


Professor I. Nelson Rose of Whittier Law School, a leading gambling law expert, said the Third Circuit in Christie I got it wrong and that PASPA is unconstitutional, noting that he believes another circuit may have ruled otherwise.

“It takes the power away from states to change their public policy towards gambling,” Rose said. “It is the first and only federal law in the U.S. that tells states what they can or cannot do when it comes to gambling.”

He said that in Tuesday’s decision, the Third Circuit made it clear there could not be a work-around to PASPA’s restrictions.
