    Chapter 5: New Jersey Racing Commission, powers, duties; definitons.

      Section: 5:5-65.1: List of persons voluntarily excluded from certain racetracks, off-track wagering facilities, account wagering, or exchange wagering.

          
1. a. The commission shall provide by regulation for the establishment of a list of persons who voluntarily seek to be excluded from entry into permitted racetracks and licensed off-track wagering facilities located in this State and from opening or maintaining a wagering account with the account wagering system or with the exchange wagering system established in this State. A person may request placement on the self-exclusion list by acknowledging in a manner to be established by the commission that the person is a problem gambler and by agreeing that, during a period of voluntary exclusion, the person may not collect winnings or recover losses resulting from wagering at a racetrack or off-track wagering facility or from account wagering or exchange wagering.

b. The commission shall promulgate regulations to: (1) establish procedures for placements on, and removals from, the list of self-excluded persons; (2) establish procedures for the transmittal to the permitted racetracks, licensed off-track wagering facilities, the account wagering system, and the exchange wagering licensee of identifying information concerning persons on the self-exclusion list; and (3) require permitted racetracks, licensed off-track wagering facilities, the account wagering system, and the exchange wagering licensee to establish procedures designed, at a minimum, to remove persons on the self-exclusion list from targeted mailings or other forms of advertising or promotions and deny such persons access to credit, complimentaries, check cashing privileges, club programs, and other similar benefits.

c. The commission, a permitted racetrack, a licensed off-track wagering facility, the account wagering system, the exchange wagering licensee, or an employee thereof shall not be liable to a person on the self-exclusion list or to another party in a judicial proceeding for harm, monetary or otherwise, which may arise as a result of:

(1) the failure of a permitted racetrack, licensed off-track wagering facility or the account wagering system or the exchange wagering licensee to withhold wagering privileges from, or restore wagering privileges to, a person on the self-exclusion list; or

(2) permitting a person on the self-exclusion list to engage in wagering activity at a permitted racetrack or licensed off-track wagering facility, or through the account wagering system, or through the exchange wagering system.

d. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 8 of P.L.1940, c.17 (C.5:5-28), the commission's self-exclusion list shall be privileged and confidential and shall not be accessible to the public pursuant to P.L.1963, c.73 (C.47:1A-1 et seq.), as amended and supplemented.

e. The commission, a permitted racetrack, a licensed off-track wagering facility, the account wagering system, the exchange wagering licensee, or an employee thereof shall not be liable to a person on the self-exclusion list or to another party in a judicial proceeding for harm, monetary or otherwise, which may arise as a result of disclosure or publication, other than a willfully unlawful disclosure or publication, of the identity of a self-excluded person.

L.2002, c.89, s.1; amended 2011, c.15, s.19.
