The DOJ's Charged with a number of offences - including aiding and abetting illegal gambling in the United States Robert Stuart's company, Extension Software
Although Extension Software merely provided online site's with a framework to offer bets, the authorities forced him to sign a plea.
As part of the plea they wanted him to create a programme that could covertly obtain account details of people using online gambling sites to track illegal gambling activity.
Stuart eventually refused to comply with the plea, prompting the authorities to put him on trial for helping US residents to gamble illegally.
The story certainly has implications for those involved in the online poker industry as it seems the DOJ are happy to target any company that has any links to online betting activity.

Just shows what shits there are in the DOJ, imagine asking someone to create a software programme to find out covertly who has been gambling. If I lived in the US and found this out I surely would let them know what I think of them and also take out adverts to make sure everyone else in the country knows as well............arseholes................................

GL to you all.............. Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

G'day mates

Perhaps I am missing the point here but is that not the so called department of Justice asking someone to commit an actual crime on there behalf. I mean I really thought that was illegal. If it is not then it sure as hell should be.
I know in Canada we have privacy laws to supposedly guard against such abuses from government organizations.
I guess the US government agents figure its ok for them to break laws.

I think the black friday deal was a great way to see for people outside US and also for US people that the US justice is not as perfect as it might seem.

IF you ask me this is a pretty serious stuff, to force someone to do somehting illegal blackmailing him Thumbs Down

This doesn't make too much sense. Ok that, to be punished by the authorities, he could be doing some type of "community work", that could perfectly be on his area. But asking him to do a software for them? That would be something of great value that would take lots of time to do, i am sure it would pass beyond community work.

G'day mate

We are after all talking about the American Injustice System.
I mean this is the same legal system which says if you are rich and famous enough that you can commit just about any crime and get away with it as long as your will to pay the cash penalty.
Think about it a bank exec laundered 2.65 Billion dollars in cartel drug money through his bank and the bank gets a 3 million dollar fine. they charged a fee of 4% for the service they performed.
Hmmm. seems like simple math to me they made a sweet profit and paid there fine and continued on doing it again. this same bank has been fined 3 times and each time the fine was the same.
Will there be a forth fine? I think yes. it is good business.

I am just saying the US government makes strange deals whenever it suits them.

bla bla bla- i was saving my poker winnings in a piggy bank with a goal to save enough to buy myself an 8 bathroom/1 bedroom mega luxurious mansion in l.a. or miami, but it just makes me sick thinking about the fact that if i move to the "free country" i will not be able to play those extremely profitable $0.02 990 man sng's

This shows once more the "good" face of the government of America.
If it is for the to gain some money everything is legal.
On the other hand everyone else is braking the law. Makes you sick in all the ways.

Wow, how two-faced and hypocritical the government is. They condemn their citizens for playing poker online, with their own hard earned money, in the privacy of their own homes. These people are doing nothing wrong. Yet they basically blackmail and try to co-erce this guy into essentially spying on people. I think the guy did the right thing by electing to go to trial, as now maybe it will bring to light just how crooked the DOJ is regarding this whole poker thing.
