Riot Slams CA Lawsuit Claims

PCGamesN hears from Riot Games, as the League of Legends developer showed them a legal filing reacting to the news that a pair of California agencies were looking to increase the $10 million settlement to the gender discrimination suit against the company. Treating the agencies like a blog, Riot says the call for a $400 million penalty "clickbait." Here's part of the summary:
In court papers supplied to PCGamesN, the League of Legends publisher says: “The DFEH’s claim that the ‘maximum exposure in back pay owed to female employees alone exceeds $400m’ is outrageous, reckless, and without any basis in fact or law. Indeed, there are numerous methodological deficiencies in how the DFEH reaches this number, each of which makes the ultimate conclusion wholly unsound.” Elsewhere in the documents, Riot says the DFEH’s claim “is completely lacking in factual or legal support and is instead rife with inflammatory misstatements and insinuations”.

Riot also accuses the DFEH of putting publicity above a fair analysis of the amount owed to the women at the heart of this legal battle: “The DFEH’s $400m number, although dramatic, is based on a flawed approach to data that is grossly distorted and misleading. As the agency charged with understanding pay equity issues, the DFEH knows this. Thus, it appears that the DFEH’s intent is not to provide a meaningful analysis of the alleged pay disparities here, but to proffer the most outlandish figure possible, in order to garner sensational headlines and pressure Riot in the public.” In a separate response, Riot called the DFEH’s claims “a clickbait number designed to get attention”.

I'm sure hoping this is a sarcastic tongue in cheek comment.

But.. Capitalism does work and it's the reason we have crazy forefront of technology and industry.
Yah, I'd assumed that it was over the top enough to be obvious....but I can (sadly) see how it might almost seem like real outrage. Capitalism is fine as an aspect of society. As the definition or religion of a society, not so much. I find it disturbing that the economic system that is best suited to sociopathy is hailed as the only basis for a successful economy. Like most things in life....it's all about a mixture.

Our place as a world/tech leader for the last 60 years might be as much due to while every other world power was having their infrastructure bombed flat, the US was ramping theirs up to fill the demand for war material.
