Niantic Is Being Sued by Attendees Following the Failed Pokemon GO Fest
Following the disastrous events of last week’s Pokemon GO Fest, a few dozen event attendees are banding together to sue developer Niantic. According to Thomas Zimmerman, the lawyer organizing the lawsuit, the attendees feel that Niantic did not provide the experience that was advertised and want reimbursement for travel and other expenses.
As we previously reported, Pokemon GO Fest was a bit of a mess. The game was unplayable for most attendees, prompting Niantic to offer ticket refunds and in game credit as an apology. However, the attendees who created this lawsuit are seeking reparations for their other expenses as well.
