Full Tilt Poker Trying To Get Back Seized Funds

This story was published more than 12 years ago.

Online poker site Full Tilt Poker's Company Director Chris "Jesus" Ferguson has filed a series of claims worth millions of dollars in New York Federal District Court.

Ferguson, who is acting on the company's behalf, is seeking funds that were seized by the United States Department of Justice on Black Friday, which led to several indictments. The claims are in the names of the following companies: Pocket Kings Consulting Ltd., Pocket Kings Ltd., Tiltware LLC., Kolyma Corporation A.V.V., Vantage Ltd., and Filco Ltd.

Ferguson is claiming that the Full Tilt “has right, title, or interest to all funds in the accounts seized by the Department of Justice."

Ferguson's legal document also reveals that Full Tilt has requested that Los Angeles based lawyer Ian J. Imrich be given permission to argue the case for the poker company, even though he is not licensed to practice law in New York.
