WotC Gets Extension to Respond
Posted by Milton Griepp on February 16, 2021 @ 5:51 am CT
After WotC made its intentions to terminate ACD as a distributor clear in 2018, ACD sued under the Wisconsin Fair Dealership Law to prevent the termination. After a change of venue, to U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington in Seattle, the court ruled that Washington state law governed the relationship between the companies, and that the Wisconsin Fair Dealership Law does not apply. The ruling removed a restraining order originally granted in Wisconsin, and WotC terminated ACD last August (see "Wizards of the Coast Says ACD Distribution ‘No Longer an Option’"). The ruling requiring ACD to pay fees followed in November.
The appeals court is now awaiting a response from WotC to the appeal; it recently granted an extension giving WotC more time to file its answer.
