I agree it's absurd Pokernews aren't covering it but given Tony G and Pokerstars are involved parties I can see why they wouldn't. Other sites though no idea.
Eh
Pokernews has been pretty face up Stars Propaganda for a long time since they bought them, no surprised there

Re: Gordon Vayo Sues PokerStars For $700k SCOOP Prize

Pokerstars' request to dismiss the suit (due to inappropriate venue) has been put over to November.

https://www.cardplayer.com/poker-new...puted-winnings

Pokerstars is incorporated in Isle of Mann and prohibited from doing business in California. Vayo claims he was in Canada when he played the tournament. Why has he filed suit in California, which doesn't seem to have anything to do with this, other than being where he allegedly was playing from in violation of the terms of service?

Off the top of my head, it has to do with the fact that Pokerstars does business in California (Pokerstars.net play money, which collects money via sale of play money chips). Why legally (if) that is sufficient grounds for jurisdiction is a question for a lawyer or legal philosopher.
