California card rooms file suit to invalidate tribal sports betting ballot initiative under state constitution's single-subject rule

Dec 22, 2021

Two California card rooms are seeking to invalidate a sports-betting ballot initiative they say violates the state Constitution.

Hollywood Park Casino Company, LLC, and Cal-Pac Rancho Cordova, LLC sued California Secretary of State Shirley Weber Tuesday in the California Supreme Court.

Petitioners argue that the initiative to legalize sports wagering on tribal land contradicts the constitution’s mandate that ballot initiatives must be limited to a single subject.
