Their case is moving forward now and I wonder if litigation will be their entrance into NY?

BTW: isn't it funny how Zuffa wants to get MMA into NY so they are actually SUING THE STATE, but all they ever say in regards to bad judges and refs and rules is "We can't do anything"

Where there is a will there is a way.........

"The UFC’s case against New York and its ban on mixed martial arts in the state will go forward after federal district court Judge Kimba M. Wood denied the state attorney general’s motion to dismiss the suit, ruling the plaintiffs have sufficiently alleged an as-applied vagueness challenge to the law written in 1997.

Specifically, the UFC and fellow plaintiffs including Jon Jones, Gina Carano, Frankie Edgar and others, argued that the combative sport ban is unconstitutionally vague under the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment.

In declining to dismiss the claim, the court noted the state’s erratic interpretation, application and enforcement of the ban over the years, including an exemption for martial arts sanctioned by various organizations including the World Kickboxing Association.

“A plain reading of this provision suggests plaintiffs would be allowed to promote a professional MMA event in New York if the event were sanctioned by one of the exempt organizations,” Wood noted. Buttressing the vagueness claim, Wood added that while the state originally agreed with that interpretation, they have now reversed course."

Where there is a will there is a way.........

You think they should sue every location in the world that has bad judging? Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

You're the person talking about suing AC's over incompetent judging and somehow I'm the dumb one?

You think? Nevada might be the most corrupt of them all. I just don't see how this and fixing the AC's are similar. Can someone explain?

Just the way Zuffa's highly paid attorneys have made a case that NY is unfairly banning them while allowing others to hold events, they could make a case that other dangerous sports are not having their rules regulated by the ACs and that refs, judges and rule sets should be handed by a third party or Zuffa themselves just like every other sport played in NV.

I'm not a lawyer but I'll leave that up to them.
