Court Affirms PokerStars Spanish Activity Legal
Codere Fails To Prove PokerStars Operated Illegally In Spain
A Spanish court has ruled that PokerStars has always operated legally in the country.
Codere, one of Spain’s largest gaming operators, had challenged PokerStars activity dating back to 2001 when it first started offering poker in Spain.
However the Barcelona court ruled that PokerStars had always operated within the law right up to when it received a license from Spanish authorities in June 2012.
Paul Telford, Group General Counsel for PokerStars said, “This ruling confirms the legal advice we have been given and which we have followed in Spain for years.
“We are very pleased the court agreed with our position and look forward to continuing to provide our licensed poker services as the leading brand in the Spanish market.”
Antonio Vázquez-Guillén, partner at Allen & Overy, PokerStars’ counsel, added, “It clarifies a question that, in our view, should never have been brought to a Court of Justice".
