Handful of Pokémon GO Fest attendees are filing suit against Niantic

Coming from Chicago-based attorney Thomas Zimmerman, discussing the filing by Pokemon GO Fest attendee Jonathan Norton...

“We’re not seeking any relief with respect to the failure to get legendary Pokémon, because Niantic is offering that. But Niantic is not offering to refund people’s travel expenses for coming to Chicago. Most of the people came from out of state, many people from other countries — I talked to someone who flew in from Japan.

The issue is, what was promised, what was the incentive that people relied on and the representations that people relied on to buy a ticket and make travel plans and fly to Chicago to participate in this festival, would they have done that had they known that that was not going to be lived up to and they weren’t going to get the experience that was represented?”

I don't know how far this lawsuit is going to go. It'll be interesting to see if Niantic swoops in to settle the situation, or if it actually goes to court.
