The case comes as the unregulated fantasy sports industry, in which people pay to compete for daily cash prizes in simulated sports contests, faces legal scrutiny following reports that a DraftKings Inc employee won $350,000 in a FanDuel contest using what appeared to be insider information. Garçon's suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt, Maryland, stated that FanDuel exploits the popularity of National Football League players to drive its business and features their names in its advertisements without paying them anything.
