Stardock Lawsuits Settled

The lawsuits between Alexandra Miseta and Stardock Corporation have been settled out-of-court, reports Kotaku, saying the court has dismissed both cases with prejudice, so they cannot be reopened. Part of the settlement is a letter of apology from Ms. Miseta, who sued Stardock CEO Brad Wardell for sexual harassment, retaliation, and wrongful termination shortly before Stardock sued her for deleting their analytics and marketing data before leaving the company without notice. Brad Wardell tells the site that no money changed hands in this, but that each side dropped their case contingent on the apology, which he says represents "vindication." Thanks nin.

so she steals and deletes analytics and marketing data (probably to cover up for her own failings) and then cries wolf to get some extra severance pay or at least as insurance against litigation. Which appears to have worked. At a risk of being called a chauvinist, fuck that lying bitch.

I don't see where people are getting the "lying" stuff from. Wardell admitted that he says inappropriate things in the office. Miseta agreed to call off her own lawsuit because there was no way she could win against Stardock's (unrelated in court) lawsuit. She wrote an apology letter that did not recant her claims of sexual harassment and did not admit willful destruction of Stardock property, it simply said she was sorry for the way things turned out. That apology letter was required by Stardock/Wardell for them to drop their lawsuit against her. "Dismissed with prejudice" in these lawsuits were a stipulation of the settlement negotiations not necessarily a determination of the judge(s).
