A New York Circuit Judge has ruled in favor of Costigan Media's Motion to Intervene and gain access to information related to seizure warrants issued in June by the US Attorney's Office in the Southern District of New York.  The warrants resulted in the freezing of nearly $40 million in funds from payment processors doing business with online poker's largest.

The Honorable Judge Laura Taylor Swain initial ruling ordered the unsealing of the seizure warrant but allowed for several redacted pages, citing an ongoing investigation.

Following the indictment of Account Service's Douglas Rennick two weeks ago, Judge Swain requested the US Attorneys Office provide further information explaining why the redacted copy should remain post-indictment. 

Judge Swain determined that some of the redacted copy should now be revealed.   The unredacted copy relates specifically to Douglas Rennick and all his business dealings and both PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker are also named in the seizure warrants as is a company "associated" with Rennick called Alenis.

Costigan Media is the parent company of Gambling911.com.   The decision is precedent setting for both the online gambling sector and electronic media.

A copy of the less redacted Agent Conte affidavits will be linked here momentarily as they were just released.
