The Kentucky Court of Appeals has overturned a decision allowing the state to seize 132 gambling domain names and ruled that a trade association may represent the owners of the sites trying to fend off the state.
The appeals court sent the case back to Franklin Circuit Court Judge Thomas D. Wingate for further hearings.
The ruling comes in a nearly six-year-old battle between Kentucky and gaming website owners. The state sought to seize the domain names, saying they were allowing illegal gambling.
IGC fought the seizure on behalf of the domain name owners.
