Kentucky Case May Take A While
October 8, 2021
Frankfort Kentucky, at the time of the 2000 census had a population of 27,741, was only 15 square miles wide, and was the fifth smallest state capital in the US, and yet unbelievably to many at the moment it's the center of Universe.

Internet privacy advocates, online companies, and the eyes of the poker world are currently fixed on the small County courtroom in Frankfort, where Judge Thomas Wingate is being asked to decide whether or not Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear has the right to seize 141 internet gaming domain names to protect Kentucky citizens from what he calls, "leeches on our community."

On Tuesday, Judge Wingate heard from lawyers, commissions, and organizations from around the country, arguing whether Kentucky has the right, or even the jurisdiction, to do this. The sheer amount of information he is being asked to consider is formidable to say the least, and as a result, according to the Associated Press, he announced yesterday that he will be postponing his ruling until sometime next week.
