Kentucky Changes Internet Poker Case Details

December 17, 2009 (PAP Newswire) -- In a strange twist (Poker News Daily's Dan Cypra calls it “bizarre”) to the ongoing saga of the state of Kentucky’s attempt to legally justify its desire to seize 141 online poker-related domain names, the state has now formally changed the case it has been building for the past year.

What’s strange is that this action comes a few months after the case had been heard in appeals court, and about a month before the case is schedule to be re-heard in front of the same judge who ruled against the state in late 2008. 

So, what’s the change? Much of the complaint is the same, but, according to Cypra, the state has now added the phrase, “In the course of the litigation and the Commonwealth’s continuing investigation, the Commonwealth has learned the identity of certain entities and individuals involved in internet gambling operations, some of whom are U.S. citizens.”

“Who this refers to is not yet known, as the Commonwealth has not yet released the names of companies or people to the general public or to counsel for the Interactive Media Entertainment and Gaming Association (iMEGA),” Cypra writes.
