Chris Ferguson's Attorney Releases Statement on PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker Settlement

Chris Ferguson

Since the inception of Full Tilt Poker up until September of last year, Ian Imrich served as general counsel of the online poker site. On Nov. 2, 2011, Chris Ferguson retained Imrich as personal counsel. Ferguson was implicated on Sept. 21, 2011, when the U.S. Department of Justice amended its original civil complaint, alleging that Full Tilt Poker and board members Ferguson, Ray Bitar, Howard Lederer and Rafe Furst defrauded thousands of online poker players out of more than $300 million.

In the wake of PokerStars’ acquisition of Full Tilt Poker, PokerNews reached out to Imrich, hoping to obtain comment from Ferguson and received the following reply via e-mail:

This settlement is great news for poker players worldwide, and particularly in the US. But Chris Ferguson is not in a position to comment at this time as he has not yet resolved his individual civil case with SDNY and the settlement discussions — while extremely positive and productive — must remain private and confidential at this time.
