WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Gaming Association (AGA) will host a call with members of the press following oral arguments before the Supreme Court today regarding Christie v. National Collegiate Athletic Association.

The Court’s ruling on the case will determine the constitutionality of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA), which prohibits sports betting outside of Nevada and a handful of more regulated states. Since PASPA’s passage 25 years ago, illegal sports gambling has grown to a $150 billion-a-year industry.

This case stands to have a significant impact on both the future of sports betting and federalism more broadly.

AGA’s President and CEO Geoff Freeman, an expert on gaming and sports betting, will provide his prospective of the oral arguments from inside the Courtroom, and what stakeholders should expect next.

     WHAT:  Press Call re: Christie v. National Collegiate Athletic Association and the future of sports betting

     WHO:    Geoff Freeman, president and CEO, AGA; and
                     Will Moschella, shareholder, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck. 

     WHEN:  TODAYDecember 4th, 2:00 - 2:30 p.m. EST
