STATEMENT FROM A.G. SCHNEIDERMAN ON DAILY FANTASY SPORTS LEGISLATION SIGNED INTO LAW BY GOVERNOR CUOMO TODAY

NEW YORK—Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman issued the following statement on daily fantasy sports:

“As I've said from the start of my office’s investigation into daily fantasy sports, my job is to enforce the law and protect New Yorkers from illegal or unscrupulous conduct.  Today, the Governor has signed a bill that amends the law in order to legalize daily fantasy sports contests, with consumer protections for New York players. I will enforce and defend the new law. Our false advertising and consumer fraud claims for past misconduct by Draft Kings and Fan Duel will continue to move forward.”
