Judge reportedly approves $100 million settlement for Riot Games’ gender discrimination lawsuit

The proceedings seem to be coming to an end.

A California judge has approved a settlement worth $100 million between Riot Games and women who sued the publisher in 2018 over gender-based discrimination, according to an Axios report.

The nine-figure settlement, which had been reached in December 2021, required court approval. The women eligible to receive the settlementfull-time employees and temporary contractors who did work for Riot from November 2014 to nowwill be notified by the end of August. They will collectively be able to receive $80 million of the settlement, while the remaining $20 million will go toward attorneys’ fees and other areas of the proceedings.

In the lawsuit, “McCracken vs Riot Games”, female employees of Riot alleged they were victims of gender discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace. Riot attempted to settle for $10 million in 2019 before the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) claimed the women could deserve more than $400 million.
