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

ALBANY – Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman issued the following statement on the passage of Daily Fantasy Sports legislation:

"As I have said from the start of my office’s investigation into daily fantasy sports, my job is to enforce the law. Today, the Legislature has amended the law to legalize daily fantasy sports contests, a law that will be my job to enforce and defend. We will nevertheless continue to pursue our claims that DraftKings and FanDuel previously engaged in false advertising and consumer fraud.”
