The PPA Goes To War In Kentucky
September 26, 2021
The Poker Players Alliance, after learning of Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear's plan to seize 141 Internet domain names related to online gambling, filed an amicus brief ("friend of the court" brief) detailing why the court case should be thrown out.

The brief, which was submitted to a hearing that started today, focuses on numerous reasons why Governor Beshear's actions should go unrewarded including a summary of Kentucky's current laws (which show poker to be legal and a game of skill) and numerous First Amendment considerations.

The PPA has also mobilized their Kentucky representatives, who have begun to organize a large grassroots campaign involving over 13,000 online poker players registered in that state. The PPA seems to want Kentucky to know, that these players' rights will not be trampled on without a fight.
