The ongoing lawsuit between Turnery “Tfue” Tenney and FaZe Clan moves into a new chapter as both parties file for a partial victory in New York State. Tfue originally filed a lawsuit in California against his former organization stating that his contract terms were “oppressive.” FaZe hit back with a counter motion in New York State, claiming that any legal motions must be pursued there and that Tfue was withholding revenue while giving secrets to competitors. Currently, the proceedings in California are on pause, giving extra weight to what is happening in New York.
More details on the filing
The Hollywood Reporter released details on the dual filings yesterday. Faze Clan claims that Tfue did not relinquish profits made from Fortnite in-game purchases made by his followers. According to the Hollywood Reporter’s story and the filing itself, ohe organization is also “challenging Tenney’s affirmative defenses that argue the gamer agreement is void for fraud and that the New York court lacks personal jurisdiction. Tfue’s legal team filed stating that his contract wasn’t automatically renewed in after October 2018 as the team did not pay him his monthly fee, and that “the renewal wasn’t triggered because FaZe Clan didn’t provide the proper written notice required under New York law.”
What’s next for Tfue and FaZe
In his motion for partial victory, Tfue also refuted FaZe’s claims that he was trading any sort of secrets with outside organizations. This is based on the fact that whatever he knew was not even in the legal definition of a trade secret. He also refuted the claim that he caused a player to leave the FaZe Clan roster. Now we wait to see what the courts in New York State decide on both sides of the ticket.
