        Feds restoring 2 poker domains to aid refunds


        NEW YORK — Federal prosecutors say they expect Internet poker companies whose employees are being prosecuted to return money to players, and they're reactivating two domain names to make it easier for that to happen.

        The government announced Wednesday that it has reached agreements with PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker. It will restore the companies' domain names so they can return money to U.S. players.

        The companies were named in a civil money laundering and forfeiture complaint last week.

        Authorities have announced criminal charges against 11 individuals, including employees of those companies and one other.

        So far, three of the 11 have been arrested. All are free on bail.

        Interesting wonder why the feds had a bleeding heart. Must be a motive behind the madness. Maybe they are building a poker site and don't want on the bad side of players eh eh.

        Probably i would say to keep their hands free of the responsibility now to pay these people what they currently have in assets at these sites. Funny thing when they can change the complete ethic and law to fulfil their obligations out of neglect.

        Thank goodness they did something right but is it just to make the sites suffer a bit more as no doubt, the amount they will have to pay out on all the withdrawals will amount to quite  a bit I would think.
