Former Full Tilt Poker board of director Rafe Furst, who had a minor role in the day-to-day operations of the site, has settled the claims against him. Furst and the U.S. Attorneys Office agreed to a Stipulation and Order of Settlement that allows Furst to admit no wrongdoing in the case, but the government has seized an unknown amount from his bank accounts in Switzerland.
In addition to that, he will have to pay a fine of $150,000 through a payment system to set up with the Southern District of New York, and he has agreed not to "work for, or derive money from, either directly or indirectly, through the operation of any internet gambling business in the United States, including businesses offering internet poker." .
The Department of Justice (DOJ) is still pursuing nine charges against Chris Furguson and and Howard Lederer. DOJ is requesting over $42 million in penalties from Leaderer and a similar amount from Furguson. However, unlike Furst, it seems like the duo will attempt to fight it out in court before paying anything.
Ray Bitar, former Chief Executive Officier at Full Tilt Poker, was arrested after returning from exile in Ireland earlier this year. After making bail, he has been on house arrest in California, with restrictions to travel, until his case comes to trial.
