DOJ: Announcement 'Soon' On Full Tilt Remission
November Update Said That Work Would Begin In January
After the Department of Justice announced in November that a third-party “claims administrator” would be chosen in January to “begin work” on the remission process for American victims of Full Tilt Poker, the month of January has nearly come and gone without any announcement.
A spokesperson at the DOJ would only tell Card Player on Wednesday that there’s going to be an announcement “soon.” The DOJ wouldn’t comment on how soon.
The United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York has been evaluating applicants for the position, according to the November “Victims Update.”
About $159 million would potentially be paid out to 1.3 million former U.S. players, who have been without access to their accounts since April 2011.
There is no timetable on how long it will take the private group, once hired, to assist the United States government in compensating victims of the alleged Full Tilt fraud.
