According to the pokernewsdaily.com, the Commonwealth of Kentucky filed a motion today “to add parties to its case and amend its original complaint.”
In September 2008, the Commonwealth seized 141 domains and several hearing and appeals later the battle goes on.
The Supreme Court of Kentucky heard oral arguments on the case in October and the decision is expected shortly.
According to this story, the Commonwealth filed a motion to amend its complaint today saying:
“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). Also unknown is whether the new targets are Kentucky residents.”
“The Commonwealth contemplates that further amendments will be sought as its investigation and discovery in this litigation continue.”
What this means exactly is unclear, but it seems Kentucky is not going to let this case go quietly and may pursue other charges against the owners of the 141 domains seized especially if any are US citizens.
