This two-hour program describes the meteoric rise of daily fantasy sports leagues like DraftKings and FanDuel and the significant legal troubles and challenges they have recently faced, including state attorney generals who have sought to shut down these leagues based on prohibitions against gambling, and lawsuits alleging that these leagues allowed their employees to use inside information to win millions in fantasy contests.
The panel considers how existing North Carolina statutes and case law might be interpreted on the issue of whether daily fantasy sports constitute illegal games of chance.
The program also explores the legislative efforts being made by various states to either ban or legalize and regulate daily fantasy sports, as well as proposals for a federal regulatory framework.
