DraftKings and FanDuel suing Illinois AG

December 27, 2015

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is facing the daily fantasy sports operators rage after the two big ones of the market filed a lawsuit to prevent the sabotage against the fantasy sports industry. Cook County’s court in Chicago has received the lawsuit from DraftKings and FanDuel after Attorney General Lisa Madigan proclaimed the illegality of daily fantasy sports operations. The two main operators immediately filed lawsuits against this new movement against this threat that is trying to destroy the daily fantasy sports industry. DraftKings from Boston, and FanDuel from New York, have started legal actions to prevent more damage to one of the most profitable industries in the country. Others like Head2Head Sports LLC did the same from Arizona, in an attempt to stop this anti-betting campaign.

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan took advantage of the situation created by US states Nevada and New York when both declared daily fantasy sports betting activities illegal. DraftKings and FanDuel have been trying to bring some common sense on to this situation, pointing the amendments that Madigan should go through, in order for Illinois residents to be included as legible players. Iowa, Arizona, Montana, Louisiana, Nevada and Washington are already fighting a similar situation, where taxes are the main issue. Daily fantasy sports operators continue to claim the nature or these activities, including them in the category of games of skill, something that should be legalized, not criminalized. FanDuel stated: “lawmakers should give back to the people of Illinois the games they love. For now, we intend to continue offering play in Illinois until there has been a decision from a court on our lawsuit.”
