Statement From A.G. Schneiderman On Yahoo Daily Fantasy Sports

NEW YORK—Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman issued the following statement on Yahoo Daily Fantasy Sports:

“Following yesterday’s announcement that FanDuel and DraftKings will follow the law and stop taking bets in New York State, Yahoo has now informed my office that it will do the same. New York law has long prohibited sports wagering, including betting on daily fantasy sports. As long as that’s the case, I will continue to enforce the law vigorously, and I am glad these companies have agreed to follow it.”
