Niantic being sued by Pokemon GO Fest attendees
After the disastrous events of last’s week’s Pokemon GO Fest, a few dozen event attendees are banding together to sue developer Niantic.
According to lawyer Thomas Zimmerman, who’s organizing the lawsuit, the attendees feel that Niantic didn’t provide the advertised experience and want reimbursement for travel and other expenses.
During the event, the game was unplayable for most attendees and Niantic offered ticket refunds and in game credit as an apology.
“We’re not seeing any relief with respect to the failure to get legendary Pokemon, because Niantic is offering that. But Niantic is not offering to refund to refund people’s travel expenses for coming to Chicago. Most of the people came from out of state, many people from other countries.”
