Professor I. Nelson Rose quoted in LA Times article on death of California internet poker bill

LA Times, September 9, 2016


Professor I. Nelson Rose was quoted in the L.A. Times on the death of the most recent internet poker bill in California.

With a market topping $1 billion in California alone, it is no surprise that competing gambling interests have failed to agree on who should get a piece of the pie, according to I. Nelson Rose, a law professor and gaming expert at Whittier Law School.

“For the operators, it’s high stakes,” Rose said. “If you are a local operator, you want to have the monopoly and you want to keep out real big money and experienced operators like Caesars or Amaya.”

Rose had long predicted Internet poker legislation would not pass this year because it is an election year and those seeking reelection in the Legislature are uncertain of how voters would react.
