Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning. How do you know this guy or get involved with him? Have you brought this to his attention? Seeing how the season has not started yet, are you going to play in the league or are you asking about previous actions by him?
Thank you. Allow me a moment
If his intent was to defraud and cheat others out of their money, then it may rise to the level of criminal. You can contact the police but for something like this, they may say it is civil. If anything, you could sue him, along with the other players, for the return of the money. If the rules of the league strictly prohibit this and he is doing it and there is evidence, the Judge may order that he return the entry fees. After all, it could be argued that the rules are the terms and conditions of the agreement are the contract which everyone agreed to and that there was a breach and he benefited from his wrongdoing.
Yes, if you can show damages. In this case, you would need to show the Judge how you were damaged by this. It would be hard to say if he had not done this, then you would have won, since you do not know the outcome.
Is there anything else I can answer or clarify
