Full Tilt Fires Back at Gowen

Chapter Two of the Clonie Gowen vs. Full Tilt saga could be even uglier than the first. The online poker giant has launched a return volley straight for the heart of their former representative. Gowen, who filed suit in November of 2008 after she was released from her contract, claims that she was offered a 1% stake in the company. If this were true, she would be entitled to a return of approximately $40 million. Full Tilt has added a lawsuit of their own to the mix, requesting that Gowen make a statement in which she disavows her claim of owning any stake in the company.
