A northern Arizona Indian tribe, one that last week wasn’t awarded a license to conduct sports betting in the state by the Arizona Department of Gaming, has filed a lawsuit seeking to block the state’s Sept. 9 startup of wagering.
But a legal expert said he doesn’t expect the tribe to succeed in stopping the state’s sports-betting startup.
Daniel Wallach, the co-founder of the Conduct Detrimental podcast on sports legal issues and a gaming and sports-betting attorney, said the Yavapai-Prescott tribe’s argument isn’t likely to sway a judge.
