Faze Clan vs Tfue Lawsuit Settled!
Esports first major employment lawsuit, Esports Org Faze Clan vs Fortnite star Tfue, after over a year has finally come to a conclusion via settlement. In May of 2019 Tfue blew the world of esports away announcing that he was suing Faze Clan over a contract dispute regarding sponsorship opportunities and payment. Many have speculated who would come out on top, and with a settlement and Tfue being released from his contract, I think it’s safe to say Tfue is the winner.
Often times in situations like these it ends up being cheaper to settle a lawsuit than fight it. Who knows if Faze Clan would have actually won if they continue to fight, but what we do know is that it was probably cheaper to just let Tfue have what he wants.
“Faze and Turner Tenney are pleased to announce they have resolved their disputes and settled their litigations,” the email from both sides legal teams read. “The parties wish one another the best of luck in future endeavors.”
This was supposed to be the lawsuit to set a major president in the realm of esports contractual law, however with it ending in a settlement, it looks like things as they are will continue. Whether that is good or bad is up to everyone else to decide.
