On November 18, 2015, our team of Daily Fantasy Sports lawyers filed a federal lawsuit against daily fantasy sports websites DraftKings and FanDuel seeking the money lost by our clients. In many states, including Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina and Tennessee, gambling debts are unenforceable and a person can file a private civil lawsuit to recover any losses sustained through gambling that is not done through a state approved lottery. Anyone who has lost money to either DraftKings or FanDuel could get their money back if gambling is illegal in their state.
