Pokemon Go: Michigan couple sues over game’s impact on private property
Pokemon Go is the subject of yet another lawsuit: A Michigan couple is suing Niantic, Nintendo, and the Pokemon Company in federal court. The pair say that a Pokestop and Pokegym in the park next to their home has caused hundreds of players to invade their yard on the daily, destroying landscaping, peering into vehicles, and preventing anyone from sleeping. They petition the court in their class action to force Niantic et al. to block its GPS-bound virtual locations when they are on or near private property and share profits with private citizens who have been terrorized since the game’s launch.
