About the Program

The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA) outlawed sports betting throughout the United States with the exception of Nevada, Oregon, Delaware and Montana. Initially spearheaded through a referendum by New Jersey voters, legislation by the State was passed to allow for sports wagering. This led to the state being sued in 2012 by major sports leagues as well as the NCAA. Several legal battles would follow over the years. Fast forward to 2018, Governor Philip Murphy of the state of New Jersey, was successful in overturning the Act. “On May 14, 2018, the Court reversed lower court findings, favoring New Jersey in deciding that PASPA violated the anti-commandeering principle by a 7–2 vote, and declared the entire law unconstitutional by a 6–3 vote.”

Join the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity on October 20th as Baruch College Professor Marc Edelman, an expert on sports law and the rights of college athletes, will lead a discussion with Professor John Holden, an expert on the subject of sports corruption and gambling regulation, on the law and ethics of legal sports gambling in the state of New York.
