Empire Sues Party

, 2005-12-07, by TwoGun

In October, Party Poker removed itself from its poker network. After the seperation, it had its own stand-alone poker room and left its four former network partners, including Empire Poker, on a smaller poker network.

Soon afterwards, Party gobbled up two of its former network partners. One other former partner, Eurobet, left the network to join PokerRoom's network. So currently, Empire Poker stands to be a stand-alone poker room using software developed by Party Poker. However, its poker room is still fairly large since it was by far the largest former network partner of Party Poker.

Since the split, the share price of Empire Online, the company that owns Empire Poker, has substantially dropped. Empire Online is seeking damages for this alleged breached of contract in the realm of several hundred million dollars.

Empire filed the lawsuit in the jurisdiction that Party Gaming is based, Gibraltar.
