(Springfield, IL) — Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is seeking the dismissal of lawsuits filed by daily fantasy sports sites FanDuel and DraftKings. Madigan filed a motion Friday in U.S. District Court in Central Illinois arguing that their legal challenges to her declaration last month making their operations illegal in Illinois are without merit. Madigan noted in her motion that she has not threatened DraftKings with criminal prosecution, and the fantasy sports services continue to be offered in Illinois despite Madigan’s December filing.
