Gaming in Massachusetts - Where Do We Go From Here?

On November 4, voters will head to the polls to decide the fate of casino-style gaming in Massachusetts. If approved by voters, Question 3, the ballot initiative “Expanding Prohibitions on Gaming,” would repeal the 2011 Massachusetts gaming law that allows casino-style gaming in the state. Specifically, the proposed law would (1) prohibit the Massachusetts Gaming Commission from issuing any license for a casino or other gaming establishment with table games and slot machines; (2) prohibit any casino or slots gaming under any licenses that the Commission might have issued before the proposed law took effect; and (3) prohibit wagering on the simulcasting of live greyhound races. Please join us to hear from practitioners and experts on the future of casino-style gaming in Massachusetts depending on the outcome of the vote. The panel will be moderated by Abim Thomas, counsel in the firm’s Litigation Department and a member of its White Collar Crime and Government Investigations, Securities Litigation, and Gaming, Gambling & Sweepstakes Practices. Please RSVP for this free event through the BBA's website.
