Boss Media Defends Aftermath Of Poker Trillion Court Ruling

It was revealed yesterday that Poker Trillion has won its case in a civil court in Malta against online poker network giant, Boss Media. Operator if the International Poker Network (IPN), Boss Media, refuted the claims made by Poker Trillion yesterday that the court ruling “…will in effect bring down Boss Media‘s operation…”

The statement from Poker Trillion went on to say that “…any partner still on the Boss (IPN) Poker Network at this stage will see their service closed down, too.”

Boss Media immediately defended their position by releasing their own statement, reassuring the players on its poker network that their funds are segregated, and will not be affected in any way by the current legal situation. The statement from Boss Media called Poker Trillion’s comments “…a reckless attempt to support a legal action that is without merit and [was] initiated as retribution for their dismissal from the Boss Media network.”

Boss Media further clarified its assertion, “…player funds are not affected by the current proceedings. All players’ funds are held separately under the control of the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority and cannot be seized by any court.”

The online poker network then advised its license holders and players of the past dealings with Poker Trillion, reminding them that the online poker room was once a licensor of IPN whose contract was terminated due to alleged violations of a rake back program.

Boss Media claims that Poker Trillion has “…since then repeatedly tried to disrupt the Boss Media business through the dissemination of groundless rumours. In April 2008, PokerTrillion alleged in a press release a claim that among other things, Boss Media player funds were frozen. The allegations were false but typical of the type of tactics employed by PokerTrillion.”

According the Boss Media, only preliminary hearings have been held on the actual merits of the case, not the full judicial proceedings, but that the online poker network has plenty of requisite assets primed to continue normal business operations in the event of an unsavory outcome.

“Boss Media has assured that adequate security is provided in Malta in the event of an award of damages against it which we believe be to unlikely,” the statement persist. “In the extremely unlikely event that any Malta operations would be affected, Boss Media has high-performance back-up systems in place to ensure continued service to all our customers and their players.”
