All eyes on Judge Thomas Wingate

Property rights and free speech activists all over the country are waiting for a ruling from Franklin Circuit Judge Thomas Wingate on Gov. Steve Beshear's odd attempt to seize internet domains.

A ruling is expected at any time this afternoon. Stay tuned...

UPDATE: Judge Wingate's office said his ruling will go out Thursday morning.

Beshear could get an injuntion in state court to keep those sites out of Kentucky, but I doubt that any state court has jurisdiction to seize domain names.

It speaks for itself that the AG whose office is the only given duties to practice law for Kentucky by the legislature did not file the complaint. I am not even sure that the justice cabinet had authority under the KY. Const. to file this complaint.
