Earlier today, the daily fantasy sports website FanDuel secured an important legal victory when a federal district court based in Illinois dismissed a lawsuit seeking to disgorge the website’s operating profits and strip away one of its contestants’ winnings based on the Illinois Loss Recovery Act – a ‘qui tam’ statute that allows third parties to recover others’ unclaimed gambling losses.

Thoughts?

So the guy's arguing that FanDuel is gambling and not a game of skill. Also, since none of the gambling losers have made a suit of their own, all gambling losses from FanDuel should go to him because of some archaic Illinois Law?
