The Suite Blog >> June, 2009
Blog Entry of the Month: So, here's some fodder for you. With every new political appointment in the U.S. comes the question, "Could this be favorable for online gambling?". Okay, maybe not every appointment (God knows the head of Waste Management is going to have a say in gambling related matters). But when it comes down to a U.S. Supreme Court Justice, this question definitely begs some thought. If you hadn't heard already, President Obama has nominated U.S. Court of Appeals Judge, Sonia Sotomayor, to the high court office. A historical nomination to say the least (If approved by judiciary committee, Sotomayor will be the second woman supreme court justice and the first Mexican one at that), everybody is now scrambling to examine Judge Sotomayor's past ruling record in order to form an opinion as to how she might vote on imperative matters in the future. In regards to online gambling - a matter that could very well go before the U.S. Supreme Court - there is not much to go on except that Judge Sotomayor ruled in favor of the National Football League (a longtime opponent of online gambling...for obvious reasons) over a matter that had to do with age requirements to join the NFL. I've also read some views that since Sotomayor was an intellectual rights attorney, she might consider football game results as being intangible assets of the NFL. Maybe. Maybe not. The bottom line is that most people will agree that Judge Sotomayor is a pragmatic judge who votes based on the "big picture". The American Bar Association has labeled Judge Sotomayor as a centrist, politically speaking - and that is enough for most people in support of online gambling regulation in the U.S. It is for me. I mean, come on - how are you going to appoint a Supreme Court Judge who has already essentially voiced how they would rule on a matter - based on ideological beliefs. When the case actually came before them, they wouldn't be "judging" would they? Having someone in that seat, no matter their race or sex, who is going to make their decision based on the facts of the matter at hand and in relation to current times, is the best person for the job.
