At the same time, it seems that sports gambling will soon be legal in New Jersey.
The state has said that it will begin to issue licenses from January 9th 2013 as long as they win the lawsuit filed by the NCAA and other major sports leagues.
A number of sports leagues are suing the state in order to block the new laws about sports gambling coming into effect.
Mark Lewis, NCAA executive vice president of championships and alliance said that, “maintaining the integrity of sports and protecting student-athlete well-being are at the bedrock of the NCAA’s mission.”
When asked about the lawsuit, the director of the state’s Division of Gaming Enforcement, David Rebuck, said that he is “confident that there will be no legal impediments; if the court finds differently, we will consider all of the options before us.”
