Shkolnik Named Co-Lead Counsel in Fantasy Sports Class Action

We are proud to announce that Partner Hunter J. Shkolnik has been named Co-Lead Counsel in the In re Daily Fantasy Sports Litigation by United Stated District Judge George A. O’Toole, Jr. of the United States District Court of Massachusetts.

Judge O’Toole, writing about his appointments, noted that the appointees are “able litigators who bring ample experience, knowledge, and resources to this complex litigation.” As a member of the Executive Committee, Mr. Shkolnik will continue to investigate and develop the claims while also overseeing the coordination, preparation, and presentation of the necessary legal documentation.

FanDuel and DraftKings allegedly operate illegal online sports betting businesses that accept wagers from persons across the nation.  Therefore, Napoli Shkolnik PLLC filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of persons who sustained ascertainable losses arising out of these illegal online sports betting businesses.

“I am honored by the Court’s decision and I am excited to represent our clients’ interests and give them their day in court,” says Hunter Shkolnik. “Our firm has the resources and experience to handle this type of complex litigation.”
