Spider-Man star, Tobey Maguire has filed a response to the lawsuit he was slapped with in connection to a number of high roller poker games that Maguire and several other A-listers participated in.

In his response Maguire admits that he played in several games but denies they were ‘controlled’ or that they were illegal. Maguire insists that the games he participated in were not organized by poker games ringleader, Molly Bloom, despite her sworn affidavit to the contrary. Maguire requests that the lawsuit against him, seeking payment of over $300k related to winnings Maguire was paid by jailed hedge fund manager Brad Ruderman, be dismissed and seeks that his legal fees relating to the lawsuit be covered by the plaintiff.
