    Default iMega gears up for Kentucky case

    Next week attorneys for the Interactive Media Entertainment and Gaming Association (iMEGA) will argue to the Kentucky Supreme Court why the Commonwealth did not have authority to seize 141 online gambling domain names.

    It was only a year ago that the state, with the support of Governor Steve Beshear, seized those domain names, including PokerStars and Full Tilt.

    From Poker News Daily:

    Arguments are scheduled for 11:00am next Thursday, October 22nd, at 11:00am ET. Each side has 15 minutes to state its case and the proceedings are the final order of business on the docket for next week, leading iMEGA officials to believe that arguments may run longer than the scheduled time.

    iMEGA Chairman Joe Brennan told Poker News Daily, “Since there’s no law as to how to approach this, the Governor and his attorneys went out and came up with a process on their own. They never named who was being served and basically asked people to come to court and identify themselves.” A total of 141 internet gambling domain names were seized under the grounds that they were “gambling devices,” a term that commonly refers to roulette wheels, dice, and other tangible items found in an underground casino.
