     Score one for the side of the fun loving gaming industry. Judge Laura Swain of the Southern District of New York issued her ruling siding with Costigan Media, parent company of Gambling911. In her ruling, she has ordered the unsealing of the warrants and affidavits used in the seizure of $30 million in funds intended for online poker players. Her ruling stated: “The Court is required to order disclosure absent compelling reasons to deny access and even then must employ the least restrictive means of doing so”.

    Several sections of the affidavits and warrants are blacked out and remain sealed.

    Joe Brennan, Chairman of Interactive Media Entertainment and gaming Association (iMEGA), praised the ruling, stating that Costigan Media was given the same rights of access to information that newspapers such as the New York Times and the Washington Post might be given. He further explained that the attorneys for Costigan Media can appeal to have the full documents released.

    This investigation has been ongoing since 2006, with the FBI looking for illegal internet gambling businesses that offer online poker, casino games and sports betting.
