DOJ Extends Filing Deadline in Civil Case

October 3, 2011 - 1:53 PM EDT

According to court records, the deadline for filing claims or answers with respect to the Black Friday civil forfeiture action has now been extended from September 30th to October 31st.

Documents show that such extensions have so far been stipulated for the various companies associated with Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars, and Absolute Poker/Ultimate Bet respectively. Each of these poker sites had already been granted extensions from the original July 15th deadline to September 30th. However, the filing of the amended civil complaint on September 20th and the accompanying additional forfeiture requests have reset the clock.

Subject: Poker believes that the clock for any possible claims or answers with respect to any of the newly named assets subject to forfeiture as part of this case will begin after official publication of the assets on the DOJ’s website, as required by Rule G of the Supplemental Rules for Admiralty or Maritime and Asset Forfeiture Claims. In addition, the window may have reopened for potential claims or answers on the assets listed in the original complaint, partly because the government had not yet moved for final forfeiture of those seized accounts with no claims filed against them.

    Its better do not use “iPoker” in the title, because “iPoker” is a name of european poker network (Titan poker, WillHill poker etc.).

    Just for the sake of clarity, you mean iPoker in it’s generic sense right? As opposed to the iPoker Network which includes the like of Titan Poker right?

    Many people in the gaming industry call internet poker iPoker.

    Definitely can be confusing, but it’s pretty standard in the poker world.
