Activision Blizzard hopes to suspend California lawsuit for alleged ethics violations

Activision Blizzard has filed a motion to suspend the lawsuit filed by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing in July. The publisher wants to suspend the collection of evidence related to the surprising allegations against DFEH, which may give the company an advantage as the case proceeds.

The allegations filed last week have nothing to do with the content of the DFEH lawsuit, which claims that Activision Blizzard has had a culture of sex discrimination and harassment for many years. Rather, it has to do with the lawyer who filed the lawsuit.
