The�class action lawsuit was originally filed in 2012 by Kelly Sonnenberg, who cited the Illinois Reduction Recovery Act to assistance her situation by claiming that PokerStars had been working unlawfully in the USA, and therefore gamblers were entitled to sue and recover their lost income. Judge David R. Herndon, however, dismissed the lawsuit, and commenting later on the situation PokerStars attorney Jeff Ifrah explained:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           In what is a typically plaintiff-pleasant court, the judge agreed with all of our arguments, like the plaintiffs' failures to specify a distinct loss and to allege that both Complete Tilt Poker or PokerStars, as the 'house,' could be regarded winners within the which means of the Illinois gambling-reduction recovery statute."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           The court also highlighted the dangers of any determination that may possibly have ruled in favor of the gamblers, as it could set up a precedence in which hordes of new gamblers" may possibly flock to unlawful websites armed with the knowledge that any losses they subsequently incur would have to be reimbursed by the site.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           The most recent ruling might have an effect on a comparable case brought by the state of Kentucky against PokerStars in 2015, which aims to claim $870 million in losses apparently racked up by about 34,000 Kentuckians among 2006 and 2015. Needless to say, PokerStars is also determined to see the lawsuit thrown out of court, and as an Amaya Gaming statement explains:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Given that PokerStars only produced gross revenues of roughly US$18 million from Kentucky customers for the duration of the 5 many years at situation, a damages award in excess of $800 million is notable only for its absurdity."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           In 2010, Kentucky efficiently recovered $15 million from bwin. poker club88 party on behalf of players who lost money at PartyPoker prior to its 2006 exit from the USA's unregulated market place. Regardless of its extremely inflated figure of $870 million in losses and penalties, it's a honest bet that the state will now be hoping to collect at least some income from PokerStars.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Other news: PokerStars founder Isai Scheinberg sentenced to time served
