The U.S. Department of Justice made an announcement today that a Claims Administrator will be selected by January 2013. The following announcement was posted under the United States v. Pokerstars et al., 11 Civ. 2564 (LBS) section of the USDOJ website:
November 20, 2012—Victim Update. The United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York is evaluating applicants for the position of Claims Administrator to handle petitions for remission for U.S. victims of the alleged fraud that Full Tilt Poker committed relating to player funds. The United States Attorney’s Office expects that the Claims Administrator will be selected and begin work in January 2013.
This is just one step in the long process of repaying former Full Tilt Poker players in the U.S. John Pappas, Executive Director of the Poker Players Alliance, warned players of this in a statement today:
I would still caution folks that selecting a claims administrator is just one part of the process and that there will still be a substantial administrative process before players start seeing their money.
The process will be long and U.S. players should not count on receiving their Full Tilt Poker money until months into 2013 , at the earliest. Players in most other countries around the world are either playing on Full Tilt Poker or have received a refund from the relaunched online poker room.
