Attorneys representing Full Tilt Poker in class action lawsuits against the company have filed a motion to withdraw as “attorneys of record with the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York,” according to eGaming Review Magazine.

Jeff Ifrah and David Deitch of Ifrah PLLC, representing the online site and its individuals in two separate ongoing class action lawsuits, stated in the motion that "continued representation of defendants would create unreasonable difficulty for us to carry out our employment effectively and would result in an unreasonable financial burden to our law firm.”

Ifrah told eGaming Review that “neither the overhanging federal indictments, nor the new class action brought last month had any bearing on his and Deitch’s decision” last week. Full Tilt is still set to meet with the Alderney Gambling Control Commission on or before Sept. 15.

So why is there no news about UB? And why has our President been silent all this time. He is the head of the DOJ and is ultimately responsible for more damage to on line poker than Bush ever did.

The petition will be resent to the White House as soon as 100 more signatures are reached. Still waiting for a reply.

I dont understand why so many people just dont get it. The money is GONE!!!!
FTP owners and its reps like Phil Ivey , Howard the profeser, Dwan and so many more all screwed us over. These scum bags were going around and saying all is good play at FTP. Either they knew what was going on or there FXXXX retards. Why do you think that theses pieces of trash did not show there faces at the WSOP? And just say they did find buyers , would you ever feel safe deposting money on there site again. I was lucky only lost 1200.00 But I know there alot of people out there who lost alot more. At this point the only thing to do is wait and hope for a miracle.
