Judge Allows More Time In Online Casinos Case

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A judge has given lawyers for online casinos seven days to file legal briefs in a case that could lead to the blocking of gambling web sites in the state.

Franklin County Circuit Judge Thomas Wingate said he wants attorneys to submit the briefs before he holds another hearing in the case that he described as "very complex."

Kentucky Justice Cabinet spokeswoman Jennifer Brislin said some
online casino operators already have begun blocking access to Kentuckians in response to the lawsuit filed by state officials.

Brislin said the objective is to shut down the Web sites in Kentucky, not worldwide.
