The court said the agreement for online betting violated a federal rule

 

November 24, 2021



A federal judge has struck down a gambling deal between Florida and the Seminole Tribe to allow online sports betting in the state.

In a ruling Monday, U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich said the multi-billion dollar agreement for online betting violated a federal rule that requires a person to be physically on tribal land when wagering.

The lawsuit, filed by casino owners in Florida, challenged the approval of the agreement by the U.S. Department of the Interior, which oversees tribal gambling operations.
