The United States Supreme Court started hearing the case that could make sports betting legal in New Jersey — and in every other state across the country.
On Monday, December 4th, N.J. Governor Chris Christie made his way to Washington D.C. to hear arguments in the case brought by the State of New Jersey to lift the ban on sports betting.
Christie and N.J. State Senator Ray Lesniak both agreed after hearing the arguments that a win for New Jersey may be in the near future.
A number of justices had already suggested their support for New Jersey in this case prior to the hearing.
Sports betting is currently only legal in Nevada, Oregon, Delaware, and Montana.
