EA Settles Class-action Suit on Overtime

As reported on GameSpot and elsewhere, Electronic Arts has settled the Kirshenbaum class-action suit for a reported $15.6 million (that's a lot of copies of Madden, even at the monopoly price). GamePolitics detailed the case in report back on June 8th.

A second case, the Hasty class-action, is not included in the settlement. Of course, it was the now-famous EA Spouse blog that first brought to the public's attention the long hours without compensation that EA's development talent was subjected to.
