The Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive maker filed a post-trial motion asking the Western District Court of Washington in Seattle to nullify the verdict, but U.S. District Judge Thomas S. Zilly ruled Wednesday that the company failed to prove that there was insufficient evidence presented at trial because that evidence, according to the ruling, was straightforward and easy for the jury to understand. Zilly also denied a motion by SCUF, who was seeking enhanced damages.
