Full Tilt Poker, already indicted by the federal government on Black Friday and sued by former frontman Phil Ivey, today received more bad news.
A U.S. Court of Appeals ruled in favor of a lawsuit that Connie Gowen brought against Tiltware, the parent company of Full Tilt Poker, saying that the original lawsuit claiming the website had breached her contract was wrongly dismissed two years ago.
Gowen said she was promised a 1% ownership stake in Full Tilt Poker in exchange for her becoming a member of the site and one of its ambassadors in 2004.
Gowen wore apparel and did commercials for the site for no cost. In 2007, she refused the payment of $250,000 dollars that the company claimed was equal to her 1% share, and she was later fired from the site.
Gowen later sued for $40 million in damages for breach of contract.
