Date set for hearing on New Jersey sports betting

TRENTON, N.J.— A judge who temporarily stopped New Jersey from allowing legalized sports betting last weekend has set a court date for the state, major U.S. professional sports leagues and the NCAA to argue whether the ban should be extended.

The parties will convene Nov. 20 in Trenton in front of U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp, whose restraining order stopping New Jersey from allowing legal sports betting expires the day after.

The judge issued the order Friday, derailing Monmouth Park racetrack’s plans to start accepting sports wagers that weekend.

The NFL, the NBA, the NHL, Major League Baseball and the NCAA are seeking a preliminary injunction to extend the ban while the case proceeds. The state has until Monday to file its brief opposing the preliminary injunction, and the plaintiffs have until the following Friday to file a response.
