Professor Nellie Drew in the news on SCOTUS Sports Betting Ruling

Head shot of Helen A. Nellie Drew

Yesterday, the United States Supreme Court held that “Congress can regulate sports gambling directly, but if it elects not to do so, each State is free to act on its own.” This holding effectively opened the door for each state to determine whether it will legalize  sports gambling–unless (of course) Congress steps in with legislation to regulate gambling itself. The holding will be the subject of a number of forthcoming articles on the blog, but we wanted to highlight the expertise our co-founder, blog director and chair of the University at Buffalo School of Law’s Sports Law program, Nellie Drew, has given to both local and national media. Professor Drew was interviewed and quoted in a number of articles, linked below.
