MumboJumbo files new PopCap motion

PopCap was ordered to pay fellow casual game developer MumboJumbo $7.3 million in damages last year, a court finding PopCap guilty of fraud, tortious interference and breach of contract. With both parties appealing the verdict and the case ongoing, MumboJumbo has filed a new motion to ensure it is compensated in the event that rumours of PopCap’s acquisition or IPO come to fruition. Martin Rose, of MumboJumbo’s attorneys Rose Walker, said: “[PopCap] has a responsibility to pay its debts. We just want to do everything we can to make sure that what the jury and the court called for is carried out. Depending on the terms of the reported sale, there may be no assets left in PopCap to satisfy the full judgement.”
