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.

Sexual harassment is still sexual harassment and it is up to the individual to determine whether they consider it acceptable. Brad's behaviour was absolutely disgusting and I think she was completely justified in what she did.

Agreed. He's lucky her bf or husband didn't attempt his own form of justice.

You're lucky Blue let you back on and you turn around write this?

What's disgusting are people who immediately believe false allegations. I'd say what would it take to convince a rational person that her claims were bogus, a public apology letter? But obviously we're not dealing with rational people.

I've never done anything to anyone that a reasonable person would describe the behavior as "disgusting".

This is why we can't have nice things. People are so ready to believe the worst and hurl invective that it ends up keeping the people who make stuff we enjoy using not want to be too public facing.

It wasn't so long that game company leads would hang out on forums. That's gone now. Good job.
