Activision prevails in Manuel Noriega's  Call of Duty  lawsuit

Activision prevails in Manuel Noriega's Call of Duty lawsuit

October 29, 2014 | By Mike Rose




Newsbrief: Earlier this year, former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega sued Activision for "blatant misuse, unlawful exploitation and misappropriation for economic gain" of his image in its game Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

After Activision seeked to dismiss the case, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William H. Fahey has now ruled in favor of the publisher, stating that the lawsuit was "frivolous."

Rudy Giuliani, the law firm partner who filed the motion for dismissal, called the ruling "an important victory," adding, "This was an absurd lawsuit from the very beginning and we’re gratified that in the end, a notorious criminal didn’t win."
