Pierre Garcon and daily fantasy sports website FanDuel have resolved their legal dispute nearly three months after the Redskins wide receiver filed his class action lawsuit.
The parties agreed on confidential terms, Garcon’s representative said.
Garcon had filed a class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of Maryland, seeking $5 million on behalf of his fellow players. The suit alleged that FanDuel had used the players’ likenesses without their authorization. FanDuel doesn’t have a licensing agreement with the NFL like its competitor DraftKings does.
Garcon voluntarily dropped his lawsuit after resolving his dispute with FanDuel.
In 2014, Garcon was one of many players that had social media marketing deals with FanDuel. Players would tweet out invitations for fans to join their daily fantasy football leagues. However, FanDuel wound up terminating those partnerships.
Garcon’s lawsuit had nothing to do with those social media deals, his representatives said.
The Redskins have had a marketing agreement with FanDuel since November 2014. Washington was one of the first teams to agree to promotional deals with FanDuel. Sixteen of the 32 NFL teams have deals with the site.
