Though the Kentucky Supreme Court today released a number of opinions for cases on its docket, the anticipated decision in Commonwealth of Kentucky v. iMEGA, et al, was not among them. The next possible date for a decision in the matter will not come until late-March 2010.

In January 2009, iMEGA, who was also joined by the Interactive Gaming Council and, won a decision from the Kentucky Court of Appeals that blocked Kentucky from seizing the rights to 141 Internet domain names related to online gambling. Kentucky's lawyers appealed that decision to the state's Supreme Court, and both sides argued the case before the Court in October 2009.
