A law signed last year by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie that would allow sports betting at casinos and racetracks, including the Meadowlands and Freehold, suffered a blow late Thursday when a federal judge upheld a 1992 law that prohibits sports wagering in 46 of 50 states, including New Jersey.
The major sports leagues and the NCAA filed a lawsuit against the bill that in December was allowed to continue by the same judge who issued Thursday's ruling. The state is reportedly expected to appeal the decision.
