EDWARDSVILLE — Attorney D. Todd Mathews, who heads up the Mass Tort and Class Action Litigation Departments at Gori, Julian & Assoc., P.C., was recently named to the Executive Committee in the “In re Daily Fantasy Sports Litigation” by United States District Judge George A. O’Toole Jr. of the United States District Court of Massachusetts.
Allegations have been made that fantasy sport websites DraftKings and FanDuel have participated in and allowed employees to participate in on-line daily fantasy sports, with insider information, in violation of state and federal regulations.
“Having the court place their faith in me and the others appointed to oversee this litigation is a huge honor and responsibility,” Mathews said.
As a member of the Executive Committee, Mathews will be working to prepare the cases for trial through conducting discovery, participating in depositions and presenting arguments to the court. Additionally, Mathews will continue to work with clients in attempting to hold the defendants responsible for any alleged wrongdoing.
