Riot Games has responded to the latest development in its ongoing lawsuit against gender discrimination. The plaintiffs’ new legal counsel previously withdrew from its preliminary $10 million settlement last December.
In a statement to GameDaily, the League of Legends developer acknowledged the new legal counsel required additional time to review the preliminary agreement. Riot also mentioned its “commitment to the transformative journey we’ve been on for the past 18 months.”
Riot believed that its initial settlement was “fair and adequate” under the circumstances. The developer said that the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing’s asserted sum, who previously said that the plaintiffs deserved $400 million, had “no basis in fact or reason that would justify that level of exposure.”
Riot said that it has remained hard at work to improve the company’s adherence to its values and that it will “defend [themselves] against false narratives and unfair claims.”
