Poker Stars files motion to dsimiss charges 0

So I just read that apparently PS has filed a motion to have the charges against them by the DOJ dismissed. Allegedly they state that nowhere in the 51 page summary report does the DOJ make any direct allegations to what exactly PS did to break the law, therefore they are moving to have the charges dismissed by the courts.

On another note, Ray bitar was released on a 2.5million bail. Apparently he's severely restricted, as he had to surrender his passport, and submit to electronic monitoring. He's only allowed to travel between california, and new york for court appearances.

In light of what PS is doing, it's likely that Bitar, Lederer and the rest of these crooks likely could follow suit, slipping through the "cracks" of the justice system.

I for one am absolutely sickened by the thought of them getting away with this.

Speculation is that this may cause the PS / Ft deal to fall through, though apparently there's been an official statement that this isn't the case.

Who the f**k knows, and at this point who the f**k cares. We'll all likely have grey beards before we see our money again.

The PS motion can have backward effects, bouncing to even heavier fines. But like you say, this will only delay all the processes in which PS is involved, like the payment to FT players, and unfortunately, once again, it will be those who have nothing to do with the scheme and that were caught in the middle of it that will suffer the worst consequences. We are still going to read something like “dead player had $30k to receive that will be donated” or stuff like that, taking in consideration the delay this will get.

i think the possibility of FT rebirth lies on PS which will take very long time.....and its not clear yet if the player will be repaid...all the money of FT is already gone...but hey bitar just paid 2.5 million bail...so he still has the money i think.....

so who had money on full tilt. slap in the face that they ripped you of but even worse knowing that hes using that money to bail himself out. ever watch poker afrter dark, that wasnt there money they were playing with
dont think stars done too much wrong the full tilt situation is totally different, you could play the pros on full tilt and they never deposited so they were playing you with your own money. annnoying when you think some people blamed it on the DOJ that their money was frozen.

Yup, that's what totally pisses me off the most about this whole thing. He stole our money, used it to bail his sorry ass out of jail, and is out partying. Personally I say they should have refused bail, and left him in remand with the rapists/murderers/child molesters. His fat ass woulda made some skinhead a nice girlfriend.

I have to agree that this is definately the worst part os this story so far, i mean he doesn't have money to pay back the players but he paid his 2.5 mil bail on the spot Thumbs Down Thumbs Down Thumbs Down

Now what i could only wish is justice to be made, i wonder how he will spend our money in jail lol

Macubaas you found it impossible for him to walk out free at the end, without
even getting our money?
It is one of the possible scenarios.
AS for the DOJ, they have the FT's money as along with every data from the site.
Why dont they repay the players back? Joke right? Smile
