U.S. Supreme Court justices suggested they may uphold New Jersey’s legalization of sports gambling, in a move that could ripple quickly across the country and let other states grab some of the billions of dollars now bet illegally.

New Jersey, which is attempting to repeal its prohibition on sports gambling, contends the federal law violates states’ rights.
