Registered Clubs: Crown Bet v Tabcorp – Off and Racing

An important case for Registered Clubs was heard by the Supreme Court earlier this week.

Crown Bet and Tabcorp appeared in the Supreme Court in New South Wales for two and a half days.

Why are they in Court?

Crown Bet has applied for a declaration by the Supreme Court of New South Wales that their offer to Registered Clubs in legal in New South Wales.

Having previously attempted to engage in discussions with the New South Wales Regulator, Crown Bet elected to proceed to the Court and obtain a declaration about the legality of its offer.

Elite Legal was present for the hearing in Court 12D of the Supreme Court in Phillip Street / Macquarie Street, Sydney – the Supreme Court Building.

When is a decision expected?

It is uncertain when a decision may be made by the Judge in this case. Sometimes it occurs quickly and sometimes it just takes time.

Once a decision has been reached and published by the Judge we will let everyone know the outcome and make some observations about the case.
