Governor of California would have interfered in the case of Activision Blizzard
The scandals and controversies continue to accumulate for Activision Blizzard , and it seems that no matter how much they try, the study continues to find a way to get into trouble. On this occasion we have a more indirect case, but it certainly draws attention because it involves Governor of California , Gavin Newsom , who is accused of having interfered with the demand against the company by The cases of sexual harassment and discrimination.
According to a report of Bloomberg by Jason Schreier, Janette Wiper , the main lawyer of the case, was dismissed last February by Newsom , this with the purpose of hindering The research towards Activision Blizzard. Melanie Proctor , Wiper main assistant, renounced her charge as protest and ensures that Newsom is seeking to slow down research against the company.
As a result, the case against Activision Blizzard has been suspended indefinitely, because before continuing it is necessary to find new lawyers who take charge of the investigation. We do not know when such research is going to be resumed, but Newsom will definitely be involved in all kinds of problems in case the accusations against them strike convincing results.
Editor’s note: Obviously there are many interests around the issue of Activision Blizzard, and who knows what other public figures could be involved. Microsoft definitely has a lot of work to do to clean all the disaster in which the company is involved.
