    New lawsuits heading their way including a potential class action suit on behalf of Take-Two's sharehholders. Ouch.

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20060215/wr_nm/media_taketwo_dc

    Take-Two also disclosed that they found a "material weakness" in their accounting. Also turns out there are not only FTC inquiries, but SEC inquires as well. Yikes.

    That's all I'm going to say about the topic.

    Let's jump on the bandwagon too and sue Take Two and Nintendo for not getting together and making a GTA on the Gamecube.

    'Milberg Weiss, the most prominent class-action law firm in the United States, said in a press release on Monday that Take-Two engaged in fraudulent and illegal conduct during the class period so that insiders could sell more than 661,000 shares for proceeds of more than $18 million.'


    sorry, not sure what some of you are reading, but that shit's not legal; and if i actually owned shares, i'd be 'bouncing off the f*cking walls' pissed. there's nothing frivolous about that.

    Maybe so. But unfortunately fuckheads like Thompson have now pretty much guranteed a planet-wide rolleyes whenever Take 2 and legal action are mentioned in the same sentence.

    Yup, you're right.

    But it's much easier to click on the little buttons and make fun things like :horse:  or :rolleyes:  etc.

    I gotta ask. Are YOU actually Jack Thompson? It seems like you have as big a hard on for Take Two going down as he does.

    Another thing for Jack Thompson to whine about when he attends one of those meetings.

    Y'know, I hear that if they win the suit, Jack Thompson's gonna swear a pride oath of blood-vengeance over the pyres of his ancestors.

    Imagine if these lawyers would band together and fight the real rapists, murderers, drug dealers, pedophiles and terrorists instead of chasing the ones in video games.
