Kentucky Seeks to Block Online Gambling, [pcworld.com] For Good
The state of Kentucky's attempt to block resident's access to 141 online gambling sites has proceeded to the next level, as a Franklin County Circuit Court judge refused Thursday to dismiss the case. Judge Thomas Wingate denied pleas by the Interactive Media Entertainment and Gaming Association and the Interactive Gaming Council. Arguments will be heard on November 17 before a ruling is made in this case that has been ongoing since September.

The civil action brought by Michael Brown, Secretary of Justice and Public Safety, and endorsed by Democratic Governor Steve Beshear, seeks seizure of 141 domain names of popular online gambling websites.

The judge ruled that the actual domain owners, not representatives, must appear in court at the next date and show that kentucky residents are being blocked.

The feedback from some I know who wa recently involved in a civil case is that becasue it is a civil case the parties can be represented by their lawyers, only in criminal cases must the parties appear in person.

How come this judge was then able to order the owners to appear?
