A false advertising class-action lawsuit
was filed against FanDuel (a fantasy sports website) in state court in March 2015 and transferred to federal court in April 2015. The complaint alleges that the website misleadingly advertises that it will match the initial deposit of all new members “dollar for dollar” when, according to plaintiffs, the “dollar for dollar” match is based on a formula requiring members to continue to play and invest on the website and, as a result, the website does not actually match new members’ deposits. (Leung et al v. FanDuel, Inc. and FanDuel, Ltd.
, Case No. 15-cv-835, C. D. CA.)
