Eyes Turn Back To Kentucky For Tomorrow's Supreme Court ISP Seizure Hearing
October 21, 2021

The next and hopefully last act in the Kentucky ISP seizure case is set to play out tomorrow (10/22) in Kentucky's Supreme Court, as the Commonwealth of Kentucky does their best to convince the state's highest court that the lower Kentucky Court of Appeals had erred when they ruled Judge Thomas D Wingate had incorrectly applied the state's gambling devices law and that Kentucky did not have the right to seize 141 internet gambling related domain names.

The Commonwealth of Kentucky, representing State Governor Steve Beshear, will once again be facing off against lawyers from the Interactive Gaming Council (IGC), the Interactive Media Entertainment & Gaming Association (iMEGA) and numerous other interested parties including the ACLU, eBay and the Poker Players Alliance (PPA), in a case that could have widespread implications, not only for the 141 out of state websites with their domain names in jeopardy- including both Full Tilt and PokerStars- but potentially any website on the net which may have content considered controversial or undesirable to any one particular state in the Union. 

Tomorrow's Kentucky Supreme Court hearing will be open to the public and streamed live via the web starting Oct. 22nd at 11:00 am ET, to watch visit
