By Liana B. Baker NEW YORK (Reuters) - Top daily fantasy sports companies DraftKings and FanDuel filed lawsuits on Friday to contest an order to shut down their online gaming operations in New York state, asking a state court to rule that the games are not illegal gambling. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman earlier this week ordered the two companies to stop taking money from New Yorkers and declared the games to be against the law. DraftKings said in its lawsuit that Schneiderman was "using strong-arm tactics and defying the rule of law," accusing the state attorney general of acting as judge, jury and executioner of the companies.
