The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a challenge to the 1992 law banning sports betting everywhere (including New Jersey) except for Delaware, Montana, Nevada and Oregon.
Governor Chris Christie said he’s “thrilled” with Tuesday’s decision.
“I’m feeling pretty good,” Christie said. “If the Supreme Court goes the other way, I don’t know what our other option is,” he said. “(But) I’m encouraged by it. We’re not declaring victory. But at least we’re in the game, and that’s what we want to be.”
