Date Set for New Online Poker Trial in Kentucky

September 15, 2009 (PAP Newswire) -- iMEGA is gearing up for another round against the U.S. state of Kentucky and its anti-poker governor Steve Beshear over the legality of that state’s decision last year to seize 141 online poker domain names, most of them of international ownership and operation.

Though the state appeals court originally sided with iMEGA and the other plaintiffs, Beshear and co. have opted to take the case all the way to the Kentucky State Supreme Court. And that court has announced that it will begin hearing the case on October 22.

"The Supreme Court has set oral argument in Commonwealth of Kentucky v. IMEGA, et al for 11 a.m. on Thursday October 22, 2009 in the Supreme Court courtroom,” iMEGA states on its website. “The order allots 15 minutes for each side.”

“We’ve been waiting for this for a long time, and we’re going to win again,” said Joe Brennan Jr., iMEGA’s chairman. “From the beginning, Kentucky law has clearly supported our position, and a win in the State Supreme Court will put the final emphasis on that.”
