This video of an alleged game lawsuit from 2006 was a bit of an eye-opener. The girl is suing for emotional distress as a result of the alleged sexual assault that occurred in a park near her home in 2002. She argues that the defendant’s actions constituted sexual harassment and that she was subjected to harassment which created a hostile work environment.
I’m not sure that these allegations are as relevant now as they were in 2006, but I’m glad we can all agree on one thing: It’s nice to be able to bring up something like this in video games.
For what it’s worth, the girl’s lawyer says the case was settled out of court in 2006, but I’m sure she’ll still be making the same claims in court if she gets her way. If you’re interested, there’s a link to the lawsuit here.
The lawsuit was dismissed before being heard by a judge, and the allegations were dismissed with prejudice, meaning they can’t be brought back up later. The whole thing sounds like a pretty pathetic attempt to avoid a trial, but it is a bit of a step up from the usual “they said X, so I will believe them” approach.
If you read the rest of the article, it will be clear just how much the case against her looks like a publicity stunt (or, more accurately, like a publicity stunt in which they hired someone to do their dirty work for them for free). If she does get her way, the fact that they took the case to court tells me they arent taking all the legal costs that the case could bring in and that they may be afraid of losing out on a big settlement.
To be clear, the reason for this lawsuit is not that she’s not responsible for the accident that killed her husband but that the suit is so ridiculous that they have to do this to make a point. The point is that they would rather lose the case in court than win in court. The lawyers are really just doing it to make themselves look good.
I think the case is a complete loser, because as you might have guessed, when their client dies the case is settled. But instead of being the one to take the loss, they are the one who is going to pay for the damage. And even better, it is they who are going to be responsible for the legal fees.
That’s right, the lawyers are the ones who are going to be responsible for the legal fees. In this case it was the girl who sued them, who filed the lawsuit and lost. In fact, she could have won her case in court, but they wouldn’t have had to pay her for legal fees. But they didn’t because it is they who are going to pay for the legal fees.
The game is a timed-action game where you play one of the two main characters, a girl and a boy, who live in the same house and face the same challenges. In the game, the girl is known as “Girl” and the boy is known as “Boy”. You can choose to play either girl or boy. The game takes place in a time loop where the girls and boys are the same, except for one specific event.
The game is called Deathloop and it’s going to be available starting from now, March 5, 2013.
