Lawsuit: Employees Had Access to Inside Information
According to espn.go.com, two class-action lawsuits have been filed against DraftKings and FanDuel, centered around the fact that the sites, up until October 6, 2015, allowed their employees to enter contests in each other’s pools and that employees had access to inside information that allegedly could have helped them win money. The lawsuit states that:
“In addition to years of data on optimal strategies, which gives Defendants’ employees a huge advantage over even the most ‘skilled’ (daily fantasy sports) players, Defendants’ employees also have real-time access to data on current lineups of every player in every contest, and the overall ownership percentages of every player”
Both daily fantasy sites have denied wrongdoing. In a joint statement earlier this week, they said they have strong policies in place to ensure that employees do not misuse any information at their disposal. The lawsuits seek damages that will be determined at trial, the website reported.
Affected Consumers May Be Entitled to Compensation
The actions of some employees of DraftKings and FanDuel may have caused consumers to be unfairly disadvantaged. If that is the case, then consumers who played on these websites could be entitled to compensation for their losses.
Affected consumers are encouraged to speak with a consumer fraud attorney to learn more about their rights and remedies against DraftKings and FanDuel.
