Judge Thomas Wingate of the Franklin Circuit Courtroom ruled on Tuesday that until he finalizes his decision, the commonwealth must leave a number of online poker and casino sites "as is". This means they will stay live.

Gambling911.com reported Monday night that the world's largest registrar - GoDaddy.com - had relinquished certificates for a number of online poker sites including CakePoker.com, UltimateBet.com and DoylesRoom.com to the commonwealth of Kentucky as part of a seizure order brought on by Governor Steve Beshear.

During Tuesday's hearing, Judge Wingate ruled that the commonwealth would not shut off the GoDaddy registered sites until his ruling was rendered by next Wednesday.

Much of the online poker community had been deeply concerned over developments in the past 12 hours related to the most recent seizures.

Network Solutions refused to roll over, however. Tim Highland of Stein Sperling represented one of the world's oldest registrars performed brilliantly, explaining why a domain name could not be considered "property" as the commonwealth was alleging.

The Network Solutions attorney disclosed that the registrar had several online gambling companies among its clients.

"If anything, the online gambling site itself should be seized, not the domain," Highland argued.
