In the most recent update to the Activision-Blizzard lawsuit, wherein they are accused of perpetuating a “frat boy” culture, the company made an attempt to pause the case but was rejected by a local judge according to Eurogamer. This follows the last development where the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) accused the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) of an ethics violation stemming from the DFEH’s use former EEOC attorneys that lead the departments case against Activision-Blizzard.
This ethics violation proved to be a legal issue, so the DFEH quickly replaced the two attorneys, but Activision-Blizzard sought to pause the case in its entirety. Unfortunately for them, a local judge denied their application to pause the case.
It is a small update, but a meaningful one all the same as the lawsuit will still be moving forward for now.
