New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal and Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro opposed the new opinion of the U.S. DOJ that stated that the 1961 Wire Act applies to other forms of gambling beyond sports betting. The attorneys-general urged DOJ to “withdraw its opinion altogether” or defer making any actions against companies and individuals involved in online gaming. The new DOJ opinion, if strictly enforced, could spell trouble for the thriving online gambling space in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
