SCOTUSblog asks

In Murphy v. NCAA, will the Supreme Court rule that Congress cannot prohibit New Jersey from amending or repealing its existing prohibitions on sports gambling?

By a count of 7-2, the question closed with "Yes" with an end date of 14 May.

In 2016, the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit ruled that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) prohibited the state of New Jersey from repealing certain laws regarding sports gambling (The Chicago Tribune). New Jersey appealed that decision to the Supreme Court, arguing that Congress does not have the authority to prohibit amendment or repeal of those laws (SCOTUSBlog, The Washington Post). The Supreme Court is expected to hand down its decision in its current term, but if it does not, the question will resolve as no.
