West Flagler files challenge against DeSantis and FL legislature

West Flagler has filed a state constitutional challenge against Florida governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida state legislature.

This follows the US Department of the Interior (DOI) filing a challenge to oppose West Flagler’s motion to stay, which was filed last week. This motion to stay was a further attempt to keep Hard Rock Bet shut down as West Flagler prepares to appeal to the Supreme Court.

West Flagler’s latest challenge claims that DeSantis “exceeded his authority” when he agreed to a compact with the Seminole Tribe of Florida in 2021. DeSantis approved the compact in April 2021, and signed it into law the following month.

The compact gave the Seminoles exclusive access to offer online and in-person sports betting in Florida.

But in November that year, a judge for the District of Columbia ruled that the compact infringed upon the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA). This reversed the initial agreement.

West Flagler also argues that the legislature exceeded its authority be..

ITIA hands provisional suspension to French tennis player Broville

The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) has provisionally suspended French tennis player Maxence Broville for breaching its anti-corruption rules.

Broville has not been able to compete in or attend any sanctioned tennis events since 20 June this year. However, the ITIA has only now confirmed the suspension, pending the full consideration of Tennis Anti-Corruption Programme (TACP) charges.

The ITIA says the suspension is in relation to Sections F.3.b.i.1 and F.3.b.i.4 of the TACP. Section F.3.b.i.1 references how a covered person has failed to “comply with a demand”.

Section F.3.b.i.4 sets out the breach in more detail, stating there is a likelihood the player is guilty of a “major offence”.

“In the absence of a provisional suspension, the integrity of tennis would be undermined and the harm resulting from the absence of a provisional suspension outweighs the hardship of the provisional suspension on the covered person,” the section says.

Broville appealed against the im..
