PokerStars CEO Mark Scheinberg has settled with the US Department of Justice in the Black Friday case.
Scheinberg has agreed to forfeit $50 million and has admitted no wrongdoing as part of the settlement.
This settlement has no bearing on the previous deal PokerStars struck in 2012 to purchase Full Tilt Poker.
In a statement to the media, PokerStars Head of Corporate Communications, Eric Hollreiser, said:
"Mark Scheinberg, the CEO of PokerStars, has agreed to forfeit USD $50 million to the US Government. This forfeiture settles potential claims against Mark’s assets based on the allegations contained in the April 15th 2011 US Government complaint against PokerStars. The agreement is not in response to any action that had been brought against Mark and contains no admission of wrongdoing, culpability or guilt on his behalf."

It's indeed peanuts for someone that runs and from what i heard also own a part of Rational Ltd aka the company behind Stars and FTP...

As long as the US players will get all their money back(from stars they already did) i guess everyone is happy.
