Online fantasy sports sites DraftKings and FanDuel are striking back at Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan who asked that the sites (and similar services) be banned in the state because she believed they were unregulated illegal gambling. Both companies retaliated by suing in separate courts to continue operating in the state.

The DraftKings suit asks the courts to rule that the company does not violate the state's gambling laws and that the attorney general's office be barred from taking action against the site.

Both sites will plan to continue offering their fantasy sports services to users in Illinois. In a statement FanDuel said, "we intend to continue offering play in Illinois until there has been a decision from a court on our lawsuit."
