Two of the world’s foremost companies on the front-lines of daily fantasy sports want back in to the state of New York.

DraftKings and FanDuel plan to appeal a court ruling that effectively banned the sites from operating in the Empire State.

According to Crains New York, FanDuel considers the ruling “only the beginning of the legal process.”
In other words, they are prepared to fight.

Earlier on Friday, a judge barred daily fantasy sports sites DraftKings and FanDuel from doing business in New York, ordering the country’s two biggest fantasy sports companies to stop taking bets after the state’s attorney general argued their operations were illegal gambling.

We are told that appeals are forthcoming.
