The coronavirus pandemic has certainly been unprecedented in many ways—socially, economically, and legally. Tony Cabot is one of the deans of the gaming law field, having been active through many various developments in the discipline down through the years. Now, as a distinguished fellow of gaming law at the Boyd Law School at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, Cabot is thinking about how the casinos will reopen, what are and should the stipulations be, what is the role of the regulator, and what will be the long term legal impact of the pandemic. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros over the phone from his home in Las Vegas last week.
