The Clonie Gowen vs. Full Tilt Poker lawsuit, which has dragged on for the past few years and appeared to be dead, is back in the headlines once again thanks to the good folks at Pokerati.com.

Gowen was widely ostracized by industry media and individuals associated with Full Tilt Poker while that company was riding high.  It came crashing down on April 15 when the US Justice Department charged FTP with money laundering and bank fraud. 

From Pokerati.com:

The case of Clonie Gowen vs. Team Full Tilt (that strangely never got to trial) is still alive in some capacity. A federal Appeals court ruled yesterday that the lower federal court — Nevada District — did indeed make errors in dismissing her claim against Ray Bitar, Howard Lederer, and various companies connected to Full Tilt.

Clonie Gowen’s lawsuit of course, was the first of what would prove to be many against various Full Tilt entities — at the time dismissed not just by a Las Vegas judge, but by the “poker world” and industy as a whole. Since then the belief that Full Tilt could do no wrong has definitely reversed itself … in American courts as well as the court of public opinion.

Clonie was seeking $40 million as a part-owner of Full Tilt. But my how times have changed … If she does finally get her day in court, certainly the valuation would have to be reassessed … and these days, were an American court to way declare that yes indeed you are an owner of Full Tilt, would that be a win?
