The Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) has given Full Tilt Poker slightly more time before the smacked-bottom hearing into the company’s license continues. According to eGaming Review, an AGCC statement released this morning explained that the hearing will take place on Monday 19th September at 9am after it was pushed back by four days. The venue has also changed and will this time be a little further down the river at the Riverbank Park Plaza Hotel in the centre of the iGaming universe, London.
It was thought that the hearing would resume on September 15th after it had been adjourned back in July as the doomed firm looked to find a buyer. Since then, there have been rumors flying around of someone buying up the firm and so far nothing has come to fruition. If FTP’s own PR is anything to go by then as many as six buyers have looked at the firm, smelled something funky and then gotten out of there quicker than an escaped prisoner.
The news of a delay comes after a week where shake ups were the buzz word for anyone involved in the various class actions being filed. Attorney Jeff Ifrah followed up his statement release and public Q and A session (aka mud slinging at FTP) with the news that he and partner David Deitch had filed a motion to remove themselves as the attorneys of record representing “Team Full Tilt.”
July’s hearing into the suspension of FTP’s AGCC license came to an abrupt halt with the answers to a number of questions still left unanswered.
