Subject: PartyGaming up 27% as founder pleads guilty in US court
Anurag Dikshit, co-founder of the online gaming group PartyGaming, saw the
value of his stake in the firm jump by 42.3m to 198m yesterday after he
became the first high-profile internet gambling tycoon to willingly face
justice in a US court.

His residual holding in the group was last night worth almost exactly the
same as the $300m (196m) he agreed to forfeit to the US courts as he
admitted offences against the wire act relating to PartyGaming's one-time
market-leading operations in the US.

I'm going to do this because of the people it is known to annoy.

Quoting:

"PartyGaming's flotation prospectus said: 'The department of justice
considers that companies offering online gaming to US residents are in
violation of existing US federal laws, including the wire act.'"

What?!? Did they really say that???

Yeah, but none of those people ever asks the US Attorney General what *he*
thinks.

This shows that what they're really interested in is shaking these
companies down for loot and not "protecting" Americans. What a joke
and a ripoff.
