The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has now hired a Claims Administrator, Garden City Group, and claims that U.S. players soon will be able to make claims. According to one news site, about 1.3 million players are still waiting for their money since Black Friday (April 15, 2011) and the amount owed is about $159,000,000.
PokerStars purchased Full Tilt Poker for more than $730 million in July 2012 - the amount included money for the DOJ to repay U.S. players. Three former Full Tilt Poker managers/owners have settled their civil cases with the government since then: Rafe Furst, Howard Lederer and Chris Ferguson. Former CEO Ray Bitar still faces several charges and might spend the rest of his life in prison.
