Would the PokerGuru-Spartan Poker legal tussle affect the IOPC?
The tournament is expected to be conducted smoothly as reportedly, the legal feud between the founder of Spartan Poker, Rajat Agarwal and members of the company’s management team could be reaching a conclusion.
Thus, the poker enthusiasts have got nothing to worry about.
What is the feud about?
The conflict began in December 2016 when Amin Rozani led SpartanPoker.com published a notice on its site stating that the Agarwal-led media and strategy website PokerGuru did not have any control over its activities.
Rozani later clarified in a separate post that PokerGuru were misusing the company’s intellectual property.
Agarwal filed a civil suit against Quadrific Media in the Calcutta High Court, and the new parent company of TheSpartanPoker.com, Spartan Online Pvt. Ltd. whereas Rozani filed a countersuit with the Bombay High Court against Agarwal and his business partners for alleged defamation.
While there has not been any public announcement regarding the settlement, sources indicate that all disputes between the two could have come to an end.
