PokerStars files motion to dismiss civil complaint

10 July 2012

PokerStars filed legal motion to the US Department of Justice (DOJ) to dismiss the amended civil complaint against it's subsidiary companies.

To support this motion, PokerStars legal team claims that the government was not able to clearly file a complaint, and only suggests that there have been shady dealings, and far-reaching conspiracies, but was not able to prove by A+B that these allegations were true.

PokerStars lawyers, suggest that the complaint fails to allege sufficient facts, to justify its bold intention to seize more than $1.5 Bilion from PokerStars since the complaint has major flaws.

It’s also common knowledge that PokerStars is allegedly near o close a deal with the DoJ that would include the acquisition of the assets of FullTilt Poker by paying approximately $390Million in funds that FTP owes the players as well as an additional sum that is said to be close to $800 Million to settle with US authorities, which including legal fees would sum an expected total amount of $1.5 Billion

For some media, this is a move that threatens to potentially void PokerStars chances of acquiring Full Tilt and settling with the government, thus for other sources, its only a mean to an end since the attorney from the Southern District of New York Preet Baharara is also submitting motions of his own to dismiss a couple of claims, thus completing the “necessary steps” to finally complete the agreement that will allow PokerStars to finally acquire the assets of Full Tilt.

Let’s see what news the next days will bring us, stay tuned, we will keep you updated.
