Empire Online Sues Partygaming - Sunday 11th of December 2005

GIBRALTAR – As reported by the BBC News: "Empire Online, which promotes internet poker and casino sites, has started legal proceedings against former ally Partygaming in Gibraltar High Court.

"The legal action follows Partygaming's move to separate its online poker system from that of its 'skins'.

"Skin sites such as Empire directed users to online poker operators, such as to Partygaming's Party Poker site, and were paid commission for doing so.

"…Empire has lost more than half its market value since it floated in June.

"'The company seeks substantial damages and injunctive relief from Partygaming,' Empire said on Tuesday.

"…However, a Partygaming spokesman said the legal action by Empire could be considered as the first 'pantomime' of the season…"
