Many of you may remember Kentucky Govenor Steve Beshear’s [unsuccessful] plight to seize 141 gambling-related domain names this past fall when an appellate court overturned a lower court’s ruling in favor of Beshear.
Well, it’s now in the Kentucky state Supreme Court, and iMEGA has briefed the court to try and uphold this ruling against Beshear & his administration. What’s interesting is the fact that the super-secret proceeding where Beshear’s lawyers were able to get a seizure order against these 141 domain names without notifying the domain name owners nor giving them the chance to be represented.
iMEGA has asked the Supreme Court to review this videotape, and I think from here on out, it’s just a formality before the Kentucky state Supreme Court also rules against Beshear…
As always, I will post updates as they become available.
