Having all 23 of the appeal court judges reconsider the case is a huge victory for the state, said state Senator Raymond Lesniak of Elizabeth..
“It has been a long battle for me, but it’s a very important battle because it will breathe life into Atlantic City and into our racetrack industry and bring tourism into Atlantic City, something that it needs very desperately right now,” said Lesniak (D-Union).
“I expect that by Super Bowl in February we will have sports betting in Atlantic City and at our race track,” said Lesniak, who is optimistic the full court will side with the state. “And you will not be able to get a room during the entire week in Atlantic City, so book your rooms early.”
A date for the court to rehear the case has not been set.
