Black Friday Defendant Sues Former Attorney For 'Professional Malpractice'
Chad Elie Accuses Jeff Ifrah Of Misconduct Related To His Work With The Online Poker Industry
Chad Elie, the former online poker payment processor currently serving time in jail, has sued Jeff Ifrah, his former lawyer, for “professional malpractice,” according to Forbes.
The lawsuit, filed in Nevada, claims that Ifrah was involved with the online poker business prior to the industry falling in the cross hairs of the Department of Justice, and then cooperated with authorities to avoid being indicted. Ifrah allegedly gave Elie “wrong advice” on the legality of the online poker payment processing business. The civil suit claims Ifrah also “hid critical documentation” that led to Elie’s eventual downfall.
Elie pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and operating an illegal gambling business. He was sentenced to five months in jail.
He claims that he paid Ifrah $4 million for his services.
According to the suit, Ifrah worked for PokerStars, Full Tilt and Sun First Bank, which was involved with the Black Friday case. Ifrah was involved with the Full Tilt Poker settlement last year and remains a prominent figure in the Internet gaming industry.
