Senator Raymond Lesniak, a leading advocate for sports betting in New Jersey, applauded the decision by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals to hear the case that would allow sports betting in the Garden State.
“This is great news that will give us the opportunity to make a convincing case to the entire panel of judges of the Third Circuit,” said Lesniak. “The fact that a majority of active judges vacated the previous ruling and voted to hear our appeal is a positive sign that reinforces what I believe is a strong and convincing case to allow for sports betting in New Jersey.
“I look forward to succeeding in court and expect to see sports betting in Atlantic City and at the Monmouth Racetrack in time for the next Super Bowl,” said Lesniak.
