Atari Responds to Turbine Lawsuit

Atari sends a response to the news last week that Turbine is suing them over the marketing of Dungeons & Dragons Online and Turbine's allegations that Atari was maneuvering to breach their agreements over the game to pave the way for a competing project. Atari has filed a motion to dismiss what they call a "frivolous" legal action saying Turbine's suit "can ultimately do a great disservice to D&D fans and to the MMO community at large." They have also filed a counteraction, which presumably is no such disservice, word is:
“Last week, with no warning, Turbine filed what can only be viewed as a frivolous lawsuit against Atari. This action can ultimately do a great disservice to D&D fans and to the MMO community at large. Turbine’s actions also appear intended to divert attention from the contractual obligations that Turbine owes to Atari. In response, today Atari served a motion to dismiss the entirety of Turbine’s lawsuit. Atari also filed a separate complaint to recover monies owed to Atari resulting from an independent third party audit of Turbine. While Atari hopes for a quick and fair resolution, it remains fully committed to the D&D communities worldwide and will vigorously protect the franchise and its own integrity in this matter.”
