Corzine Will Continue to Fight NJ Sports Betting Ban

Undaunted by his electoral defeat, Gov. Jon S. Corzine will proceed with his plan to join a legal battle to bring sports betting to New Jersey, according to his office.

On Monday, a day before Corzine lost the election to Republican rival Chris Christie, a federal judge had allowed Corzine until Nov. 12 to file a complaint against a 17-year ban on sports wagering, overruling resistance from the federal Department of Justice.
