Not every state's laws, but definitely many state laws.
Further, even if Stars executives pleaded out or convinced the DoJ to dismiss the charges against them, they are FAR from out of the legal woods in this country. Bear in mind they offered online poker in 50 states and the District of Columbia without a gaming license. If they started up again in the US, they'd face significant exposure to state prosecutions.
