Proposal to settle the Absolute poker/Ultimate Bet case

02 August 2012

The agreement between the Department of Justice and PokerStars, for the purchase of Full Tilt Poker, seems to overshadow everything, like the case of the proposed resolution of the US Attourney's office that suggested a agreement to solve the open case against Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet.

This proposal implies the confiscation of assets belonging to the group described by the DoJ as "affiliated with AP.". If they eventually get green light, the U.S. government would be responsible for the liquidation of the acquired assets.

Although right now, is not entirely clear that the parties are ready to claim against AP/UB, or the order in which claims will be met, one thing seems clear. In the words of Patrick Fleming, a member of the litigation department of the "Poker Players Alliance," For FTP and AP/UB is not even remotely the same. He believes that players at Absolute Poker and UB can not be considered "victims" because they do not weigh fraud charges against the leaders of these rooms:

"Players of AP/UB are in a worse position than Full Tilt Poker. If it is true that the leaders of both sites did almost the same thing, promised by active and passive that players funds were safe, but never return it once broke the Black Friday. Hopefully the DoJ also contemplates players AP/UB as victims, so we can start the refund process."

Plenty of American players would love to hear that this issue will be resolved soon, as the Full Tilt Poker. That is why we continue to follow developments.
