    Maybe three law firms in the Country would I want fighting for me on this, and DK hired the best one, in my opinion, to fight the NY AG: David Boies. A legend who crushed Bill Gates, lead the fight for same sex marriage, and argued Bush v. Gore. As connected as anyone. Has the ear of both the right and the left. I hope FD hires Gibson to represent them.

    To all non-lawyers, this is the best news you could get about DFS remaining legal and free of heavy government oversight.

    Dude was also played by Ed Begley Jr in Recount. HBO docudrama about 2000 election.

    This is good news.

    Two of the best law firms in the world working on this, DFS has a fighting chance now.

    I read the whole thing and all I can say is that is a great Legal Brief and It will be hard for a Judge to not allow a trial and issue a temporary injunction and give the NYS politians and Assembly enough time to come up with a DFS bill so it can be NYS Law and be regulated and taxed.

    I love this, read the whole thing as well “I’ll translate for all the non legal minds out there” You can’t play both sides of an issue claiming that one is illegal and the other isn’t given the significant indication that Season Long is actually less of a game of skill based on not being on an even field. Secondly, the AG’s office has more or less ignored due process and applicable law to advance their own opinion which the lawyers for DraftKings claim to be illegal.

    Very well argued and I think the season long vs daily argument is the best approach to take.

  • theoddsmaker

    A lot of the season long die-hards rooting for DFS to go up into flames are not going to be happy about that haha.
