    The ruling has cleared the online sites on which the advertisements were posted,....
    while the ruling was from a CA judge only (as opposed to a federal judge), i still see this as good news in the extemely, extremely, extremely unlikely event that a player were to come after a US-based gaming portal (such as those featured by many GPWA members, or even Casino City) after a loss.
