New York Daily Fantasy Sports Decision Expected “Very Soon”

It has been more than a week since Judge Manuel J. Mendez promised he would rule on the legality of daily fantasy sports in New York. It would be very surprising for the week to expire without Mendez releasing his ruling.

However, no matter what Mendez rules, appeals are likely, and in the interim the passage of one of the four DFS bills currently active in the state could render the case moot.

Meanwhile, state legislators will gather this week to explore the impact of daily fantasy sports on the state’s regulated gambling industry as well as determining if consumers of the games are at risk.
