A lawsuit that could determine the fate of fantasy sports betting in Illinois could go to trial next summer.
Boston-based DraftKings and the Illinois Attorney General agreed to an expedited schedule and a bench trial in a lawsuit that could determine the fate of daily fantasy sports betting in the state.
An order filed in Cook County Circuit Court shows Lisa Madigan agreed to respond to DraftKings' complaint by January 22nd. A trial could begin by June.
DraftKings' attorney said in a statement the company and its legal team “are confident” they will win their case.
