New Jersey racetrack continues sports betting lawsuit
A legal filing claims Monmouth Park was improperly prevented from implementing sports betting by a judge's order in 2014.
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey racetrack that led the push to overturn a federal sports betting ban isn't giving up in its attempt to get monetary damages from the sports leagues that opposed the effort.
A state horse racing association claims in legal filings that Monmouth Park was improperly prevented from implementing sports betting by a judge's order in 2014.
The Supreme Court allowed states to pursue sports gambling this year.
The New Jersey Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association wants the payment of a $3.4 million bond the leagues posted in 2014.
The association also wants roughly $140 million in damages, which it claims is lost revenue between 2014 and this year.
A federal judge rejected that argument this month, but last week the association appealed the ruling.
