Jeremy D. Frey Quoted in Philadelphia Inquirer on I-gaming Bill


Pepper Hamilton partner Jeremy D. Frey was quoted in the February 7, 2013 issue of the Philadelphia Inquirer in the article, "Christie I-gaming Bill Vetoed, But Christie Says He'll OK It with Changes."

Frey, a partner at law firm Pepper Hamilton who specializes in Internet gaming matters, said: "The governor's conditional veto paves the way for intrastate Internet gambling in New Jersey. The legislature should be able quickly to include the governor's modest recommendations.

"On a broader note, the governor's agreement to legalize Internet gambling is the only choice that can be made for New Jersey," Frey said. "With legalization of intrastate Internet gambling in Nevada and Delaware, New Jersey had the choice of losing the gaming market to others states and its leadership position in the gaming industry, or of embracing and regulating gaming over the Internet and over mobile technology."
