How the Supreme Court Tuned America Into a Casino

From a Washington Post column by Charles Lane headlined “How the Supreme Court tuned America into a Casino”:

When historians evaluate the Supreme Court’s impact on early 21st-century America, they will no doubt focus on the 2015 decision legalizing same-sex marriage or the overthrow of Roe v. Wade last year.

As the Super Bowl reminds us, however, the most underrated Supreme Court decision of the past decade might be Murphy v. National Collegiate Athletic Association. In that 2018 ruling, the justices declared unconstitutional a 1992 federal law that barred 46 states from repealing their then-existing bans on sports betting.
