Nellie Drew, a University at Buffalo Sports Law Professor, is quoted in the article.
“I think this is a huge blow for fantasy sports,” said Nellie Drew, a University at Buffalo sports law professor. “It will be interesting to see if other states follow New York’s lead, but to some extent, Nevada already has and I think others will, as well. At the same time, I don’t think the fantasy sports industry is going to disappear that easily. The industry has attracted a ton of investment from substantial investors, and they aren’t going away.”
