PokerTrillion Wins Litigation on Boss Media
August 18, 2008 (InfoPowa News) — PokerTrillion.com, a former member of Boss Media's International Poker Network which launched litigation against the Malta assets of the Swedish company earlier this year, has been successful in its latest round of litigation with the poker network.
C.E.O Andy Pyrah announced this week that PokerTrillion's case 755-08 before Judge Gino Camilleri in the First Hall Court on Malta has resulted in a judgment authorizing Trillion Ltd to enforce seizure of the Boss Media Malta Limited and Boss Media AB servers, and that these servers must cease being used for any commercial activity as from 18th September 2008. The judgment denied Boss the right to appeal.
The judgement relates to Trillion Limited’s multi-million Euro law suit for breach of contract against Boss Media AB and their associated companies, and comes following a number of successful applications made to the courts in Malta by Trillion Ltd.
In a media statement, Pyrah claimed: "Today's decision will in effect bring down Boss Media's operation in their licensed jurisdiction of Malta on September 18, and any partner still on the International Poker Network at this stage will see their service closed down, too."
The judge further ordered that the co-signatory which is now responsible for the equipment also provides full accounts of the revenues being generated from this equipment.
"It should also be noted that despite appeals from Boss Media, we've been successful in every one of our applications that we've filed with the courts in Malta and this includes having our initial garnishee order increased from Euro 5million to Euro 20 million earlier this month," Pyrak pointed out.
"This in turn means that there is now a Euro 20 million freezing order on all Boss Media's assets within this jurisdiction, and in accordance with European law we will be applying for this to be executed all over Europe."
