Some of my favorite sportslaw reading from this week:
The Lee v. Tam (The Slants case) was argued in the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday. This case may impact the Washington football team and the Cleveland baseball team (read why here). Analysis of the argument:
- Via Scotusblog, Justices skeptical of federal bar on disparaging trademarks.
- Justice by Justice analysis.
- Audio of the full oral argument.
My Conduct Detrimental podcast co-host Dan Wallach dropped some serious knowledge (and words) on the current sports betting landscape over at the Sports Law Blog:
- On the DFS Battle in New York.
- On the chances that SCOTUS agrees to take the New Jersey sports betting case.
- On SCOTUS’s invitation to the Solicitor General.
- On SCOTUS analytics post-SG invitation.
- On new sports betting legislation.
It is that time of year, here are some previews and look backs on the current sports legal landscape:
- On Forbes, Marc Edelman picked his top five sports legal stories to follow in 2017.
- On Sporting News, Cari Grieb detailed the five most important stories affecting women.
- In my 2017 SportsLaw Mega Preview, I took a look at 54 active sportslaw cases. For fans of the podcast, we will be recording a 2017 preview episode very soon.
