EA Madden monopoly suit payouts stymied by legal costs appeal

Tuesday, 9 July 2013 23:45 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The $27 million EA must payout as the result of a class-action lawsuit over its NFL monopoly has been tied up by an appeal by one of the claimants. Kotaku reports one beneficiary of the suit has filed an objection to the lawyer’s fees involved in the case. The suit dates back to 2008 and alleges EA Sports’ exclusivity deal with the NFL allowed it to jack up game prices and kill off the competition. The publisher chose to settle out of court.

Thanks, Polygon.
