INTERNATIONAL MASTERS OF GAMING LAW



Ian Ramsey of the law firm of Stites & Harrison has been named by the International Masters of Gaming Law as a general member representing Kentucky. A significant factor in Ramsey being named to IMGL involves his leading role in the case of Commonwealth Of Kentucky, Ex. Rel J. Michael Brown, Secretary, Justice and Public Safety Cabinet v. Interactive Media Entertainment & Gaming Association, et al., which is pending before the Kentucky Supreme Court. It is an important case in the evolution of online gaming law in the United States and is expected to establish precedent on whether any state court can assert jurisdiction over absentee Web site domain names. Ramsey, based in Stites & Harrison’s Louisville office, is chair of the firm’s Gaming Law Group and is a frequent author and presenter on the subject of gaming law.
