On Monday, August, 24, a federal appeals court ruled that the state of Delaware's bid to legalize single-game sports wagering be blocked, citing a violation of a 1992 federal ban on sports wagering.

"The state of Delaware should have its day in court. We hope we get that opportunity," Markell said via statement. "We believe there are important legal and factual questions that should be heard by the entire court."
