Whatever happened to that Pokemon GO Fest lawsuit? Who won it?
Last year, Niantic celebrated the 1-year anniversary of Pokemon GO with a special community event in Chicago, Illinois. However, things did not go well, and those who attended the event felt robbed because they spent money to go to this event that wasn’t anything like they were promised. As such, many attendees actually sued Niantic in order to recoup what they had lost.
Well, as reported TechCrunch, the lawsuit has been settled. The payout will be around $1.6 million dollars, but for attendees to prove they earn some of that money, they must provide statements or receipts to prove that they spent more than $107. The remaining funds will go to lawyers and a charity fund.
