Imagine working in the middle of that %^&*storm
This is directly related to the entity that produces WoW. As far as I'm concerned, it's appropriate for it to be here.
Oh, sorry my mistake. I guess this massive lawsuit is pending against a different Activision-Blizzard-King.
If you guys only knew how bad corporate finance is compared to this... it makes Activision look like amateurs. Just look up "Big4 (i.e. KPMG/PWC/Deloitte/EY). I literally heard stories of partners/directors intoxicating colleagues to sleep with them. This is literally NOTHING compared to those giants but it's my hope that this spills into all corporate sectors and investigation begin to be taken seriously.
Now they should prosecute and disbar the lawyers that move from EEOC to CDFE for their mishandling of this crap. Who would have thought it would explode in their faces. --every first year law student---
I reached the empathy fatigue for thisI don't care anymore, just go back to the actual game
World of Warcraft is that game where the EEOC saga is by far more entertaining that any SL content. That's why Blizzard is resorting to Legion TW to keep some subsciption going on <3
I am glad that a Warcraft site focus on what’s happening here as we have seen that explain’s actions taken in game, like character renaming.
At this point this is a comedy show in my eyes now.
Can someone explain what this means? I'm not the smartest person in the world and this has gone straight over my head.
@badarmIn short, the EEOC started a lawsuit. The DFEH wanted to intervene in the lawsuit and pending settlement due to an ongoing investigation on their part. While the DFEH is entitled to investigate and bring it's own suit, using former EEOC lawyers who worked on the EEOC case is a conflict of interest and against the rules. Because of all of the squabbling between the two legal agencies, it's creating even more drama and unnecessary hurdles in an already dumpster fire situation.

Basically, two vultures flying around a wounded animal. One was making a settlement with the company for the 18+ million dollars to go for victims, and the other tried to intervene because they want more out of it, and most likely a higher payout to the point where the court had to tell them to quit bickering so the case could proceed. Don't get me wrong, I want this *!@# to end and be fixed, but having these two struggling for scraps, just makes things take longer.
How is 18 mil even remotely enough for a multi-billion dollar company to pay? You're not deterring the behavior at all, that's pennies.
