Sports betting in Atlantic City rejected again

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY - Another blow to the state's quest to allow sports betting in Atlantic City's casinos.

The Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia upheld a judge's ruling that New Jersey's law allowing sports betting conflicts with federal law and shouldn't be implemented.

Several months ago, a judge rejected New Jersey's constitutional challenge to the 1992 Federal Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act.

The law prohibits legal sports gambling in all but Nevada and three other states.

Governor Chris Christie and lawmakers pushed for legalized sports betting as a way to help revive Atlantic City's casino industry.

Proponents of the plan say they will continue fighting to bring sports betting to New Jersey.
