Gambler Loses Bid To Pause Fliff’s New Arbitration Agreement

A California federal judge has denied the temporary restraining order of a man suing Fliff Inc. for allegedly offering online gambling disguised as free sweepstakes, saying the California resident failed to provide the court with evidence he would succeed on his underlying lawsuit claims of unfair competition and unjust enrichment.

Fliff attorney William Gantz of Duane Morris LLP told Law360 Friday that his client had followed the law.
