Alleging a "systematic and continued violation of the Ohio Revised Code and various criminal laws," Scott Tyler of Mayfield and Owen McGrew of Olmsted Falls filed a class-action lawsuit Monday against FanDuel and DraftKings.
"FanDuel and DraftKings are each operating an illegal online sports betting business within the State of Ohio," the suit claims. The plaintiffs explain that the two daily fantasy sports operations are based on wagers placed on the performance of athletes — making their "scheme" a game of chance, not skill, which is prohibited in Ohio.

Tyler and McGrew — and anyone else who may join this suit — want their lost wagers back.
