Friday September 9, 2011 : Canadian consumer group files in Superior Court of Quebec
 
Beleaguered online poker group Full Tilt faces another legal obstacle with the Canadian consumer group, Groupe des droits des consommateurs, announcing today that it has filed a national class action suit against the company on behalf of players who have been unable to reclaim their money following the U.S. Department of Justice action earlier this year, dubbed as "Black Friday".
 
A group statement made to the Toronto Sun newspaper 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."
 
This latest action brings to three the lawsuits filed against Full Tilt with regard to unpaid player funds.  The first filed in June 2011 on behalf of U.S. Players only (Todd Terry et al.) and the second filed in August 2011 on behalf of anyone whose accounts on Full Tilt Poker have not been paid back (Plaintiffs – Zayn Jetha and Donald Whelan).  Both suits were filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
 
In the meantime Full Tilt will undergo the continuation of the Alderney Gambling Control Commission's deliberations on the suspension of its licence, due to be held in London on September 19.
