Less than six hours after Justice Manuel Mendez granted New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman a temporary injunction that would stop DraftKings and FanDuel from doing business, an appellate court judge gave the two daily fantasy sites an emergency temporary stay that will allow them to accept entries from New Yorkers.

Randy Mastro of Gibson Dunn, outside council for DraftKings, told ESPN.com that the stay likely will be in place until the end of the calendar year. Eventually, both sides will go before a panel of four or five appellate judges, Mastro said.
