Canadian consumer group Groupe des droits des consommateurs has announced that it has filed a class action lawsuit against embattled poker website Full Tilt Poker.
The suit was filed on behalf of Canadian players who have been unable to obtain their funds from Full Tilt accounts following legal action taken by the U.S. Department of Justice in April.
With the Canadian lawsuit being filed, Full Tilt Poker is now facing three suits in regards to unpaid players. The first suit was filed in June on behalf of U.S. players. The second was filed in August on behalf of anyone who cannot retrieve funds from Full Tilt. Both suits were filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
A statement made by the Groupe des droits des consommateurs said: "The class action involves Full Tilt Poker's illegal freezing of clients' money that's kept in accounts available through the website www.fulltiltpoker.com."
