Gamestop May See It’s End Sooner Than Later; Motion to Dismiss Fraud Case Denied

Gamestop Bankruptcy Imminent As Used Games Legality Questioned

Gamestop Bankruptcy Imminent As Used Games Legality Questioned

The United States District Judge Robert Kugler has denied a motion for dismissal has been denied in a growing class action lawsuit that Gamestop is facing in a New Jersey court for violating the Consumer Fraud Act through false advertising and the omission of certain facts. In court, the plaintiffs of this case have displayed that buying used games and then the DLC (online pass most likely) which was not included would actually cost more than just buying the game brand new for $60.

The fact that this type of transaction is advertised as being a discount is where the fraud part comes in to play. If Gamestop fails to defend themselves in this lawsuit it may end up setting a precedence for more class action lawsuits from similar customers who have been swindled by the company’s greed-driven misleading of faithful customers to the last surviving brick and mortar game franchise. This is an ongoing case, so all of this is “alleged”. Good luck Gamestop, this is the beginning of the end.

Twitter Sued For $50M For Refusing To Identify Anti-Semitic Users

The privacy of many Twitter members is being argued about in the latest lawsuit naming Twitter the $50 million plaintiff. redletterdave writes After a French civil court ruled on Jan. 24 that Twitter must identify anyone who broke France’s hate speech laws, Twitter has since refused to identify the users behind a handful of hateful and anti-Semitic messages, resulting in a $50 million lawsuit.”

“Twitter argues it only needs to comply with U.S. laws and is thus protected by the full scope of the First Amendment and its free speech privileges, but France believes its Internet users should be subject to the country’s tighter laws against racist and hateful forms of expression.” [Source: Slashdot]
