New York Probe of Fantasy Sports Sites Includes Yahoo

A probe by New York State's attorney general into the fast-growing, multibillion-dollar daily fantasy sports industry has been expanded to include online media giant Yahoo Inc., a person familiar with the matter said. The move coincides with a court filing by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman seeking a temporary injunction that would shut down DraftKings and FanDuel, leaders among online companies offering paid-for daily fantasy sports contests.
