Clonie Gowen's Full Tilt Lawsuit Thrown Out For A Second Time

Time is running out for Clonie Gowen’s ‘breach of contract’ lawsuit against “Tiltware LLC, et al” after a  federal judge dismissed the case for a second time. Gowen was formerly a member of “Team Full Tilt” but filed a lawsuit in the Nevada District Court back in November 2008, against Full Tilt Poker, its software provider Tiltware LLC, several FTP associated companies, as well as individual poker players, for damages to the tune of $40 million.
In the complaint Gowen alleges that in return for representing the site she was orally offered 1% ownership of Full Tilt Poker at a meeting led by Howard Lederer at Phil Ivey’s suite at the Golden Nugget. Subsequently, she never received any payments and so sought $40 million in damages or 1% of the $4 billion valued poker website.
On April 27th, her case was almost entirely dismissed by the District Court when it was decided her claim against several players and Full Tilt associated companies lacked merit and so was dismissed with prejudice. The legal term means she would no longer be allowed to pursue claims against several players which included  Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, Phil Ivey, Erick Lindgren and Patrik Antonius, nor corporations which included Full Tilt Poker online, Pocket Kings Limited and Pocket Kings Consulting.  
Three defendants named in Gowen’s case were dismissed without prejudice, meaning she was entitled to re-file claims against them, and these were Tiltware LLC, Tiltware Owner Ray Bitar, and poker professional Howard Lederer. However, last week Gowen had her re-filed case dismissed by federal Judge Robert C. Jones and now she has been given up to October 29th to make a third and final appeal against a single defendant this time namely Full Tilt Poker associate company Tiltware, if she chooses. 
We will try to bring you any news of a further appeal by Clonie should it occur.
