Long-running court battle takes another twist.

This latest court decision was initiated by the pro-sportsbetting New Jersey Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association who joined State Governor Chris Christie and the state legislature in filing a motion in early September .
The petition for a rehearing questioned the validity of the previous decision saying it was “precisely the opposite” of previous court rulings that said on the one hand that New Jersey could repeal anti-sportsbetting laws and on the other that a repeal would violate Federal law.
The long-running case opposing the expansion was initially filed by various sports associations after New Jersey politician’s legalised sports betting in 2012.
