In an update to an article we brought you last month, Deliverance Poker has voluntarily dismissed their claim against Full Tilt Poker. In a court filing in the Western District of Texas dated Friday, October 8th, Deliverance Poker indicated that Full Tilt has not answered the suit nor filed for summary judgment. Without all of the legalese this means that Full Tilt is no longer a named defendant in the case. However, Michael Mizrachi still is.
The lawsuit states that Mizrachi was under contract to wear Deliverance Poker logos exclusively during public appearances and tournaments, including the 2010 WSOP Main Event. The contract also states Mizrachi granted Deliverance exclusive rights to his name, voice and likeness The lawsuit was filed to recover lost earnings, profits and earning capacity. Mizrachi work Deliverance Poker logos during his first televised final table at the 2010 WSOP, the $50,000 Players Championship in which he won his first career bracelet. Mizrachi switched to Deliverance Poker during his run in the Main Event.
In a ruling from Judge James Nowlin last month, he did not believe there would be a substantial likelihood that Deliverance Poker would prevail in the lawsuit based on current evidence. At the same time a temporary restraining order against Mizrachi and Full Tilt were denied.
