Kentucky Online Poker Rematch Scheduled
September 9, 2009 (CAP Newswire) – The Interative Media and Entertainment Gaming Association (iMEGA) is set for its rematch against Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear and his action last year to seize 141 Internet gambling domain names.
Late last year, iMEGA successfully got that order blocked on the grounds that Judge Thomas Wingate “had misapplied the state’s gambling devices law, and inappropriately sought a civil forfeiture of domain names from their rights holder,” according to EGR Magazine.
“iMEGA was joined in its suit by the Interactive Gaming Council, the Poker Players Alliance, the ACLU, the Centre for Democracy & Technology, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Internet Commerce Association, eBay and Network Solutions. The oral arguments forCommonwealth of Kentucky v. IMEGA, et al will be heard at 11am on 22 October.”
