The U.S. US Department of Justice released a new legal opinion stating that the 1961 Wire Act does not only apply to sports betting but also in all forms of gambling. The DOJ reached this conclusion because of a conspicuously and suspiciously missing comma in the provision. As’s Rafi Farber explained, this is all just technical mumbo-jumbo since PASPA has since been overturned. The only sector that would be affected by this change are the lawyers—as they wait impatiently for the calls of clients asking their assistance in court.
