Acra Turf Club v. Zanzuccki, 13-3064

Dismissal of an action filed under 42 U.S.C. sections 1983 and 1988 against defendant, Executive Director of the New Jersey Racing Commission, alleging that certain amendments to New Jersey's Off-Track and Account Wagering Act violate plaintiffs' rights under the United States Constitution, is reversed and remanded, where: 1) this action does not fit within the framework for abstention outlined in Sprint Communications, Inc. v. Jacobs, 134 S. Ct. 584 (2013); and thus, 2) the district court erred in dismissing the case on Younger abstention grounds.
