Activision Blizzard Lawsuit Delay Denied

Law360 (may require registration or subscription) reports that Activision Blizzard's efforts to postpone the lawsuit against it filed in July by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing have failed. This is one of two lawsuits against Activision Blizzard over discrimination and harassment in the workplace, and the company requested a stay so it could conduct further internal investigations. GamesIndustry.biz summarizes the ruling:
But Law360 reports Judge Timothy Patrick Dillion has denied this application within less than a week.

Dillion did not elaborate on his reasoning for this order.

The DFEH submitted an opposition to Activision's request the day after it was filed. In a statement following Dillon's decision, the department said Activision Blizzard's request was "baseless" and that it "looks forward to prosecuting the state's enforcement action on the merits."
