The saga of Clonie Gowen and Full Tilt Poker added another chapter this week. Gowen had sued the poker room for breach of contract back in November and named many of Full Tilt's top pros in her lawsuit, including Phil Ivey, Chris Ferguson and Howard Lederer.
Full Tilt sought to have the lawsuit thrown out. Clonie did not file an opposition to the motion. Instead, she amended her original lawsuit to add two new defendants and seven causes of action.
From Poker News Daily:
Gowen also added new claims for an accounting, promissory estoppel, specific performance, declaratory relief, right of publicity, quantum meruit and negligent misrepresentation.
She also continues to maintain her "minority oppression" claim - which refers to a breach of fiduciary action brought by a minority shareholder against the majority - against the other members of Team Full Tilt.
Gowen also tinkered with the amended complaint to include additional legal elements, such as alleging that the defendants had superior knowledge of the companies and that Gowen placed her trust in them and relied on their statements to her.
