The Kentucky Court of Appeals is expected to issue a ruling soon on whether a state court can order the seizure of Internet domain names that are registered in another state or country...

In a friend-of-the-court brief, Matthew Zimmerman, senior staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, said the ruling is "unconstitutional and [was] made without jurisdictional authority."

Zimmerman said he expects that the appeals court will issue a ruling later this month.
