Supreme Court to review Florida sports betting case

The Supreme Court is set to consider the Florida sports betting case on June 13.

There is no assurance that the Supreme Court will hear the case of West Flagler and Associates vs. State of Florida. However, the day on which the group of judges will examine the merits of hearing the case has been set in stone. The matter is scheduled for a conference on June 13. At that point, if at least four justices believe the matter is worth hearing, they will opt to do so.

When the Supreme Court declined to stay the Circuit Court’s judgment, Justice Brett Kavanaugh filed a supplemental brief arguing that the issue had national consequences and should be heard. Justice Neil Gorsuch is well-known for his support of tribal rights, so he may be interested in this issue as well.

The Supreme Court considers cases based on the potential far-reaching consequences of its decisions. While the Florida lawsuit concerns specific aspects of a single agreement, the plaintiffs say that how the courts have construed the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) in relation to online gambling is a matter of national importance.

Every year, the Supreme Court receives over 7,500 requests for writs of certiorari and normally grants around 150. The court will hear oral arguments on the subject in the fall if it decides to grant cert in this case.
