A late-night order granting summary judgments puts a hold on the Seminole’s monopoly to conduct sports betting in Florida concluding that the 2021 Compact violates the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA). The federal judge vacated the 2021 Compact and reinstated the 2010 Compact.

Background

In 2018, the Florida constitution was amended to limit and to control the expansion of “casino gambling” in Florida. See Art. X, Section 30, Fla. Const. Article 30 provides that the state can only authorize an expansion through a citizen’s initiative but allows the state to negotiate a gaming compact with Native American tribes. (Casino gambling is defined as “any of the types of games typically found in casinos and that are within the definition of Class III [of IGRA].”
