Fresch & Smith Featured in ABA TIPS Animal Law Newsletter

Partners Elaine Fresch (Los Angeles) and Melanie Smith (San Diego) were featured in the American Bar Association's Tort Trial & Insurance Practice (ABA TIPS) Summer 2018 Animal Law newsletter.

The newsletter included Melanie's article, "Recent United States Supreme Court Decision May Speed Horseracing Industry Growth," in which Melanie discusses the United States Supreme Court decision in Murphy v. National Collegiate Athletic Association, a decision that struck down as unconstitutional a federal law prohibiting sports wagering outside of Nevada. 

Additionally, the newsletter featured an update from Elaine, Chair of the ABA Equine Law Subcommittee. Elaine's update included the takeaways from the committee's two-day session at the annual University of Kentucky Equine Law Conference in Lexington, Kentucky. The committee gathered to discuss updates and impacts from recent case law affecting the equine legal industry.
