March 5, 2009, exactly 11 years to the date that 21 online gambling operators were indicted for violation of an obscure 1963 "Wire Act" and it is this day that Bodog officers will need to appear in a Las Vegas courtroom where they must answer to a costly civil complaint.

Gambling911.com has learned that not only did Bodog lose $10 million to the US Government, but on March 5th the corporate officers for the defendant's, who have dodged the bullet for the past year and a half, will have to appear in person at the Federal Courtroom of Judge Hunt at 9am in Las Vegas or face civil contempt charges by the judge.

Our sources reveal that "What is particularly important is that the order applies to named officers like Bodog Entertainment Group S.A. President Mr. Umana, but also Bodog's finance manager David Ferguson, and any other Bodog officer, which means anyone who has acted as an officer for such actions as leases and other legal agreements - for which we have found evidence that others representing Bodog in an official legal Capicity for that group."

The court order appears below, obtained exclusively by Gambling911.com.
