Absolute Poker Threatens Legal Action Against Gambling911.com

Gambling911.com, whose founder Christopher Costigan won a landmark case against an online gambling establishment in 2002, disclosed on Wednesday that his website has been threatened with legal action by Absolute Poker.

Speaking on behalf of Absolute Poker, Joann Priam demanded an article be removed from the Gambling911.com website:

"Our legal counsel is requesting that this be pulled by 6:00 PM EST today or they feel it necessary to issue you a formal letter. This type of situation certainly doesn't lend itself to a mutually beneficial and rewarding business partnership moving forward," she crowed.

The article in question reported that the father of an Absolute Poker founder is under sealed indictment in the US.

Ms. Priam also seemed oblivious to the fact that Gambling911.com had tracked down one Allan Grimard and Scott Tom in Los Suenos, Costa Rica, while conducting an undercover investigative report. Grimard is alleged to have been involved in a massive "insider cheating scandal" at Absolute Poker. He has apparently used that money to purchase a brand new yacht, SUV and is in the process of building a mansion along with Absolute co-founder Scott Tom. Grimard and Tom were both observed laughing about the Absolute Poker scandal.

"On a separate note, but in a similar vein, the listed "facts" in the article mentioning AJ Green are not factual either - however, it is the cross reference to the previous article that seems more relevant," Priam stated, in an obvious attempt to cover up their tracks.

The CBS news magazine, 60 Minutes, has been following developments in this matter.

The Kahnawake Gaming Commission oversees Absolute Poker. It was unclear if they would be party to any legal battle that might ensue.
