Attorney Derril Jordan Speaks on Ruling on Mobile Sports Wagering in Florida


Mctlaw Attorney Derril Jordan recently spoke at the National Council of Legislators From Gaming States (NCLGS) conference in Boston, on July 8.

He discussed recent court rulings, how they affect the future of Indian gaming for tribes, the implications of the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s compact litigation, and how that impacts tribal and state relations.

Mr. Jordan’s remarks were covered by U.S. Bets, which ran an article that extensively quoted Jordan.  As reported in U.S. Bets, Jordan stated: A federal judge in November should not have blocked the Seminole Tribe in Florida from offering mobile sports wagering statewide.

He added that the correct conclusion previously had been reached by the U.S. Department of the Interior, which declined to strike down an agreement between Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Seminole leaders to legalize sports betting.

Jordan has nearly 35 years of experience representing tribes as in-house counsel and in private practice. In addition, Mr. Jordan served as a presidential appointee in the Department of the Interior’s Office of the Solicitor, where he was the top lawyer for the Division of Indian Affairs.

At mctlaw, Jordan now concentrates his practice on developing tribal enterprises, strengthening tribal governance, and improving government-to-government relationships between Indian tribes and the federal government.
