Judge Approves Activision’s $18 Million EEOC Settlement

A California judge has approved an $18 million settlement between ActivisionBlizzard Inc. and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, marking a victory over objections from a State Department that sought to intervene.

Activision previously agreed in September to settle with the EEOC, which was investigating the video game giant for allegations of sexual harassment and retaliation. But the company and the federal agency found themselves locked in a months-long legal battle with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing after the state agency sought to block the settlement, saying it could ruin the department’s lawsuit against Activision.
