Zynga and EA settle dispute, drop lawsuits against each other

Zynga and EA drop lawsuits against each other

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Feb 16, 2013 12:04 am

For our happy Friday story, we can report that Zynga and EA have agreed to drop their lawsuits against each other. In a document filed today, both companies agreed to drop their lawsuits with prejudice, which means they are unable to file new lawsuits with the same causes of action.

EA's lawsuit accused Zynga of copying one of their games. Zynga fired back with a lawsuit that accused EA of unfair hiring practices. It's likely that the companies didn't want to air dirty laundry and decided to drop it. Both companies are paying for their own legal fees and there has been no mention of a settlement.

 

Zynga confirmed the dismissal: "EA and Zynga have resolved their respective claims and have reached a settlement of their litigation in the Northern District of California."
