State of Kentucky receives multi-million dollar judgment in online poker company lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A multi-million dollar judgment is made against an online poker company.

The state of Kentucky sued the company that owns PokerStars for violating state anti-gambling laws.

A judge ruled in favor of the state.

Now 14,000 members of the Poker Players Alliance are trying to get a piece of the money.

Their attorneys say players should get the money since they're the ones who lost it.

The judge hasn't decided how much the company will have to pay, but it could be as much as $750 million.
