The Plaintiff ("Uebler"), a New York resident, filed suit against the Defendants ("Boss Media"), a Swedish company, alleging that Boss Media failed to pay the prize money payable to Uebler as a result of having won an online contest from a gambling Website. The lawsuit was filed in a New York District Court.
The New York District Court granted Uebler the right to continue her claims against Boss Media and its licensee, Cyber Croupier, and to seek recovery of $913,333.42 payable to Uebler because of her winning the online contest.
