You're kind of missing the point. Sounds like he had to in order for Stars to get FTP. Gotta hand it to the DOJ, they're good at extortion.
Bottom line is these guys are getting a slap on the wrist, the DOJ got to steal millions of $, getting more in fines, and we lost the ability to play the biggest site in the world and have had to suffer the inability to use payment processors like the ROW can, not to mention the use of our bankrolls from AP/UB/FTP. Another congressional success story.
Course if you are the AG, you get to ignore contempt of congress and have the AG that works for you decline to prosecute. (Sorry for the rant-the DOJ just makes me see red.)
