Daily fantasy sports site FanDuel said on Tuesday it would no longer let people in New York enter its paid contests in response to efforts by the state's attorney general to declare the games illegal gambling. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman filed earlier in the day for a temporary injunction that would shut down daily fantasy sports leaders FanDuel and DraftKings in the state in the latest blow to the fast-growing, multibillion-dollar industry. A hearing on the injunction is scheduled to be heard by a New York state court on Nov 25.

Chicago tried to convince a sometimes skeptical Illinois Supreme Court on Tuesday that a 2014 law deserves to survive a constitutional challenge because it aims to save two of the city's retirement funds from insolvency by guaranteeing adequate funding. The city, which is struggling with a $20 billion unfunded pension liability in its four retirement systems, is appealing a Cook County Circuit Court judge's July decision voiding the law. In oral arguments on Tuesday, Chicago's top city attorney, Stephen Patton, said while the law includes "modest reductions in future automatic increases" in retiree pensions, it differs from a 2013 law that unilaterally cut benefits for Illinois' retirement systems and was struck down as unconstitutional by the state high court in May.
