Just done a quick perused the internet looking this up, and apparently what brought the shut down about is that some NY attorney general's files regarding black friday were unsealed that revealed they were acting contrary to the AGCC's licenses.

STATEMENT FROM POKERSTARS

DOUGLAS, ISLE OF MAN – JUNE 29 – In light of today’s news that Alderney Gambling Control Commission has suspended Full Tilt Poker’s license, PokerStars wishes to assure our customers that their funds are completely safe and that our operations are completely unaffected. The Isle of Man Gaming Commission today re-affirmed that PokerStars' worldwide licensing is intact and that our operations are in full compliance with all of its requirements. PokerStars' online operations continue as normal and all funds in players’ accounts are safe and available for withdrawal as usual with no delays.
PokerStars also remains in full compliance with our licenses in other jurisdictions where we are regulated, including France, Italy and Estonia.
As provided under our licensing, PokerStars has always maintained the integrity and security of our players’ funds, by keeping all such funds in segregated bank accounts, always available for immediate withdrawal.
Since the actions of US Department of Justice in April, we have returned more than $120 million to US players and continue to act upon requests as they are received. Players outside the US have not been affected and all cash-outs have been processed without delays. Further, PokerStars entered into an agreement with the Department of Justice which expressly confirmed the company’s ability to operate outside the US.
We will continue to operate as a responsible corporate citizen and are committed to serving the needs of our customers in complete compliance with our regulatory requirements.
For further information please contact press@pokerstars.com.

Isn't Alderney a fictional city in Grand Theft Auto 4? FTP is based in a fictional city?

Once the doj ordered them to pay out, they did not have the funds and now once again they are in non-compliance. There are currently two bill.s in the house on legalizing online poker. The revenue the usa can extract from online poker is enormous and players are more then willing to pay their share of taxes. We all need to be patient and let this shake out. I believe that pokerstars, by staying in compliance, will eventually be back up. I would not however, invest a dime in any other site, as they are all under the microscope and the legal process in a long journey. For usa players use this time to work on your game for free.

Wasn't Pokerstars doing the same stuff as Full Tilt? Sucks cos I was considering coming back but now not sure it's worth the risk. They're on a difference license but why wouldn't their authority do the same thing to them?
