Poker Pros Sue WPT

19 July 2006

CALIFORNIA – As reported by the Minneapolis Business Journal: "Seven of the most famous poker players in the country, including Phil Gordon and Howard Lederer, will file a lawsuit against WPT Enterprises in Los Angeles federal court today, alleging the parent company of the World Poker Tour violated antitrust laws, the poker players' attorney said.

"The lawsuit seeks to void releases that the players signed that give the WPT rights to use their names and likenesses, and also seeks to void agreements between the WPT and Las Vegas casinos that prohibit the casinos from staging poker tournaments that compete with WPT events, attorney Jeff Kessler said.

"…The other plaintiffs are poker players Andrew Bloch, Annie Duke, Chris Ferguson, Joseph Hachem and Greg Raymer…"
