Pokerstars just will not give up. Thank God!
Looks like the Atlantic Club Casino deal that fell through for PokerStars as a step towards offering real money
games to US players will not stop them!
"...we are looking forward to launch PokerStars in the U.S. in association with the other quality brands Resorts has brought to Atlantic City,” said Mark Scheinberg, CEO of The Rational Group."

Let us all hope and pray that they come back to the US. If they follow the new Ultimate Poker attempt, where you can join and play only
if a resident of Nevada (for now - they claim to be trying to expand to all states where online poker is legal), you guys and gals in New Jersey might be able to lord it over us for a while if this works out. Later, they will hopefully expand as Ultimate plans on doing.
However, they will still have problems. My old home state, Kentucky, is still after pokerstars (and Fulltilt poker. Good luck with that one) .

"Kentucky will continue to pursue action against internet gaming companies identified in its pending lawsuits, which include PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker
Last time I was "back home", I thought they should spend more time worrying about the meth epidemic, bringing jobs and tax revenue to the State, silly stuff like that. Knowing them as I do, they will probably settle for a few million. That is the kind of "perfectly legal blackmail" crap they already pulled with other sites. This should not hinder the return at all. KY will then welcome them, like long lost sources of tax income, er, I mean friends.
