The ink was barely dry on the Supreme Court opinion issued this morning on Murphy v. National Collegiate Athletic Assn. (16-476) before legislation was filed to take advantage of it.
A summary of the opinion:
Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) provisions that prohibit state authorization and licensing of sports gambling schemes, see 28 U. S. C. §3702(1), violate the Constitution’s anticommandeering rule; no other PASPA provisions are severable from the provisions at issue.
According to the Sacramento Bee, “State Assemblyman Adam Gray, D-Merced, is now moving forward with a proposed constitutional amendment that would make sports gambling legal in California.”
Time for everyone in Nevada to mourn.
