Long-running domain case amended again by state officials
The state of Kentucky's long-running attempt to hi-jack the domains of international online gambling companies, which has seen a succession of court cases, appeals and amendments by the Kentucky officials recorded yet another state amendment in the latest appeal, with online gambling giant Party Gaming added to those companies the state has cited.
The news broke Wednesday that Party Gaming had been added to the state's case, presumably because it is a publicly listed soft target with clearly defined shareholders. It is at present unknown how the state's action is impacted by Party Gaming's earlier multi-million dollar settlement with the federal authorities over its pre-UIGEA activities.
The Kentucky amendment including Party Gaming appears to focus on the period immediately preceding the UIGEA's passage in 2006.
Other companies cited by the state include Pocket Kings, which is associated with the giant online poker site Full Tilt Poker, a company that has continued to offer online poker to the American market post-UIGEA.
Party Gaming has not as yet commented on its inclusion.
