What the Supreme Court’s Murphy v. NCAA Decision Means for Fantasy Sports

Program Number: 2938

Program Date: 01/30/2019


Arent Fox Sports Partners Glenn Colton and Jennifer O’Sullivan invite you to a 60-minute webinar that will highlight key consequences from the US Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the federal ban on state sponsored sports betting.

Following that decision, many issues remain. Will there be an overarching federal gambling law? Will that law address fantasy sports as well? If there is no federal law, how will states distinguish between fantasy sports businesses and traditional gambling businesses. What should the fantasy sports industry be doing to protect itself from improper classification and potential over-regulation?

This webinar will review the history and nature of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, including the Supreme Court decision in Murphy v. NCAA, as well as the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act and Wire Act, analyze how the applicable laws affect the gaming and fantasy sports industries from a business perspective, and offer specific do’s and don’ts for fantasy sports executives from two of the industry’s top lawyers.
