Full Tilt Poker’s Raymond Bitar

It seems a little late but Full Tilt Poker founder Raymond Bitar has now filed a claim against forfeiture allegations by the US Justice Department.  Bitar and another executive of the company were both charged with money laundering and bank fraud on April 15.  Bank accounts and homes belonging to Bitar were seized by US Feds. 

From PokerWorks.com

Bitar is disputing the "government's forfeiture allegations" and he is also requesting "an opportunity to challenge the government's forfeiture claim; both the factual allegations and legal claims, as contained in the Complaint." Bitar states that his "claim to the specified property is superior to the government's interest" in the properties and the "assets subject to forfeiture are neither proceeds nor instrumentalities of any crimes in any jurisdiction in the United States or elsewhere."
