Riot Games previously agreed upon a preliminary settlement of $10 million in December in the lawsuit regarding gender discrimination. But now, new legal counsel representing the plaintiffs is looking for even more compensation.
The class-action suit, initially filed by former Riot employees Melanie McCracken and Jessica Negron, is now represented by Genie Harrison and Joseph Lovretovich. Harrison is an attorney specializing in sexual abuse, sexual harassment, and employment cases. Lovretovich also specializes in employment and personal injury cases.
“These brave women spoke out against gender inequality and sexism, and I want to make sure they are fairly compensated,” Harrison said. “Our well-qualified statisticians are already analyzing pay data. We intend to recover the compensation due to the women of Riot Games and achieve institutional reform, in order to level the playing field for women.”
