The owners of PokerStars have filed a motion to see the charges made against them by the United States government dismissed. The company is hoping that the Black Friday charges are dropped and many believe that the dismissal will help the online poker room continued their rumored deal with Full Tilt Poker.
The motion was filed by the group of companies that own PokerStars and the motion states that the charges were made on grounds that are insufficient. The motion follows claims made just a few days ago by Howard Lederer and Rafe Furst the co-founders of online poker room Full Tilt Poker.
Chris Ferguson also filed a motion to dismiss and Full Tilt is claiming that the United State government has not been able to prove that Full Tilt was defrauding their customers on purpose. Full Tilt also claimed that their activities did not quality as an illegal gambling business.
The United States government has also filed motions to dismiss two other cases against both PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker. One case involves a group of former players of Full Tilt in a class action lawsuit. The other suit involves both online poker rooms and claims that they both were practicing unfair business and they hindered other similar companies as well as skewing the online gambling market.
It has been rumored that the United States motion to dismiss the cases is being done to help PokerStars finish their takeover deal with Full Tilt Poker. There is no information to confirm this rumor and neither of the poker rooms or the Department of Justice has confirmed this rumor. We will continue to monitor the Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars situation and report any new information as it is released in the future.
