West Flagler Associates has asked for a rehearing in the ongoing saga of legal sports betting in Florida following the U.S. Court of Appeal’s decision to uphold a compact.
The deal in place—and the one that was verified by the federal court—grants authority to the Seminole Tribe for online wagers since they are processed on servers at their facility. West Flagler owns Magic City Casino and Bonita Springs Poker Room and wants a cut.
A federal judge in 2021 sided with West Flagler, but that decision was reversed by a three-person committee ruling in the Court of Appeals on June 30th. However, Hard Rock Sportsbook (owned by the Seminoles) never reopened as it anticipated a further challenge.
