A 63-Page Answer Brief Filed In Florida Sports Betting Case

  • The 63-page report responds to briefs from the Dept. of the Interior and the Seminole Tribe.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – On Thursday, West Flagler filed their Answer Brief in the Florida online sports betting appeal.

Florida Sports Betting Back And Forth

Sent to the DC Circuit Court, this comes 14 months after the Florida gaming compact saw approval. An approval made law without action from the US Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Indian Affairs. With approval, online sportsbooks in Florida went live.

Still, the hub-and-spoke betting situation was a looming problem.

What Happens Next?

In a typical situation, a filed brief is 10-20 pages. Here, the 63-page brief could add some time into the matter.

But, the file responds to two appellants – both the Department of the Interior and the Seminole Tribe.

This situation shows the case in still present. Floridians should not expect online sports betting in 2022 and likely 2023 either.
