Full Tilt Poker fights back against DOJ

Attorneys for online poker website say owners didn’t run a Ponzi scheme

Earlier this week the Justice Department (DOJ) sued the owners of the online poker website Full Tilt Poker for allegedly defrauding its thousands of online poker players out of more than $440 million. But the card sharks aren’t going down without a fight. 

On Wednesday, lawyers representing Full Tilt say the company didn’t run a Ponzi scheme, as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara claimed in a press release. Rather, the gambling website merely may have been a mismanaged business operation.
