Launch of Hard Rock Sportsbook in Florida could be delayed by months or years due to legal battle
Despite a recent legal victory, the relaunch of Hard Rock Sportsbook in Florida may be delayed until at least late August or even further due to expected appeals by West Flagler and Associates
Hard Rock Sportsbook's return to Florida could be delayed until late August, and potentially even further, as legal challenges continue to plague the operator.
Despite a recent victory in the U.S. Court of Appeals, which ordered the reinstatement of the compact agreement granting the Seminole Tribe a monopoly on sports betting in Florida, additional legal obstacles remain.
West Flagler and Associates, who initially brought the case against the U.S. Department of the Interior, is expected to appeal the decision, potentially prolonging the launch timeline by months or even years.
