The online poker industry was waiting for a decision this past Thursday to come from the Kentucky Supreme Court but it didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t happen.Ã‚Â The case in question involved poker where 141 online gambling domain names were seized and subject to forfeiture.Ã‚Â Included in the gambling domains were Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars.
But a verdict wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t reached so now everyone has to cross their fingers until at least the middle of March.Ã‚Â A lot of people arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t too concerned about the delay including the Interactive Media Entertainment and Gaming Association (iMega).
In a recent interview iMega Chairman Joe Brennan said that the origination expects to get a positive verdict for the owners of the 141 domains that are in question. Ã¢â‚¬Å“As far as weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re concerned, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re confident that weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve won in Kentucky. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve moved on.Ã¢â‚¬Â
In October the Kentucky Supreme Court heard all arguments in the case and then in December Commonwealth attorneys filed a motion to add names to the case, stating, Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Commonwealth has learned the identity of certain entities and individuals involved in internet gambling operations, some of whom are U.S. citizens. The Commonwealth asks for leave to amend its complaint to add causes of action against these individuals and entities.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The next date where the Kentucky Supreme Court could possibly come to a decision on the case is March 18th.
