    Heard this while listening to WFAN, and seeing it being reported on various sites.

  • Revolution

    Just read that but it doesn’t seem to mean much? He just said that the Ag hasn’t prevented them from still doing business in NY AND he will have another hearing nov 25. So does that mean we have another 9 days. Correct me if im completely wrong here

  • jcblanco22

    That’s exactly how Dustin Gouker at Legal Sports Report broke it down. The temporary restraining order was not needed seeing as how DK’s motion for an emergency hearing was granted AND the AG stated to the court he will not take further action against the sites before the Nov. 25th hearing. So what initially sounded like bad news actually seems to signify everything remains status quo in NY for another 9 days.

  • soonerdawg

    way i understand it was the restraining order protected them beyond the 5 day notice to comply, so i take it to mean that New Yorkers are screwed until the judge hears the case on the 25th…but i am far from a legal scholar

    Hey revolution , I’ve been staying away from the serious forums and sticking to the sports ones…haha..thanks for the advice I’ve been happier amd less frustrated….

    It actually states in the report that on the contrary, they can continue to operate in NY as usual until the 25th at a minimum. And additionally, the AG apparently also stated on record he will not take further action against DK’s “business partners” (i.e. payment processors) before that hearing either.

    The request of the emergency hearing means that until the hearing is held no action can be taken aganst the operators.

    But the payment processor is still being strong armed and sites are no longer accepting deposits from NY?

    That is a processor issue, so it could be the processor saying that until they get more clarity they will still not process payments. We haven’t heard much from the processors, but it isn’t the sites not accepting deposits.

  • bbqnut

    I thought the processors were taking a wait and see attitude.

  • maxeernst

    DK is still accepting NY deposits as far as I know.

    As of right now:

    DK is accepting NY deposits

    FD is NOT accepting NY deposits

    As of right now:

    DK is accepting NY deposits

    FD is NOT accepting NY deposits

    So why is FD not accepting deposits?

  • madmanjayWV

    Better yet? Y is DK still accepting?

    That makes literally zero sense.

    Either there is a “loophole” which means it’s legal, or there is no “loophole” and therefore illegal.

    You can not have a “loophole” that is illegal. That is not possible.

  • johnny

    As for deposits, DK has always pushed the limits legally on everything they’ve done from day one of their launch.

    However, there is no reason to stop taking deposits until the courts decide if it’s legal or not.

    It would be interesting to see if this action happened before or after the meeting the AG had with the NBA yesterday being the NBA is a “Bussines Partner’ .

    NBA confirms that it has been in contact with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman regarding daily fantasy.

    That was a tweet. No other info though.

    My name is Sharon Briandi and I play DFS because I am disabled and I suffer from chronic pain.I had 2 surgeries replacing discs in my neck.I have degenerative disc disease and stenosis.My lower back has now given me problem and chronic pain.
    I play DFS for my mental health.Most people with chronic pain suffer depression.Dfs allows me to get involved in a sport I love,Football.I have something to look forward to every day because when you play DFS you have to read and learn a lot everyday.It keeps me very busy and helps to keep my mind sharp.
    Without DFS I would be severely depressed everday,nothing to look forward to and no reason to want to get out of bed.Again,people who know nothing about DFS and their sports they are betting on would play DFS.You have to know all about players,positions,injury impact, weather impact so on and so forth.
    NYS Attorney General needs to understand the entire scope before making a decision to take DFS out of NYS. I really hope Draftkings and Fanduel fight really hard to allow me to continue the love I have of playing DFS.

  • madmanjayWV

    Yeah — sabriandi — it’s sad…this whole mess is
