(AP) A federal appeals court has denied New Jersey's request for another chance to argue sports betting should be legal.

The U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia on Friday quashed the motion to bring the arguments before the full court.

Now Republican Gov. Chris Christie's only option is to go to the U.S. Supreme Court.

A Christie spokesman hasn't returned a request for comment.

New Jersey voters approved a referendum to allow sports betting in 2011. Christie signed it into law last year.

Four professional sports teams and the NCAA sued the state.

A three-judge panel ruled in September the state's betting law conflicts with federal law and can't be implemented.
