More Legal Issues for Full Tilt Poker

Full Tilt Poker, one of the major online poker sites involved in the “Black Friday” indictments, now faces another legal defeat. A judge ruled in favor of former Full Tilt Pro Clonie Gowen in her suit against Tiltware, Inc., and its founders, claiming that she was entitled to a one-percent ownership share and did not receive her contracted compensation.

 

The Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that a Las Vegas judge made a mistake when he dismissed Gowen’s breach-of-contract suit against Tiltware last year. The appeals court also ruled that the Las Vegas judge was wrong in dismissing Gowen’s claims of fraud and negligence against both Tiltware CEO Raymond Bitar and fellow Full Tilt pro Howard Lederer.

 

Although the appeals court ruled that Gowen’s suits against Tiltware had merit, they also said some of her other lawsuits, including those against other poker sites and well-known poker pros, were rightfully dismissed. Gowen must refile her suits to win any judgment against the troubled online poker site.

 

Earlier this month, former Full Tilt pro Phil Ivey also sued the site for damaging his reputation. Ivey alleges that the site’s methods of skirting US anti-online gambling laws led to him being associated with illegal gambling due to his endorsement of the site. Ivey is also sitting out this year’s World Series of Poker in protest of Full Tilt’s inability to repay US-based customers as promised.

 

Since 15 April, the Tiltware principals are still facing indictments from US federal prosecutors for money laundering and illegal gambling. Bitar has told the media that he is not guilty of any of the charges, which could carry up to 20 years in federal prison.
