Pokémon Go developer Niantic could be in hot water, as a Detroit couple has filed a class-action lawsuit against the company.
In a report from the Detroit Free Press (via GameSpot), Scott and Jayme Dodich are trying to stop wild monsters from appearing on or near private properties without the owner’s blessing. The lawsuit also asks for a share of the game’s revenue for having helped in raising its popularity.
According to the lawsuit, the couple live near the public Wahby Park which is a Pokémon Gym – attracting “hundreds” of people a day.
"Nobody gets sleep anymore," the lawsuit says. "How is this acceptable? ... They hang out on our lawns, trample landscaping, look in vehicles ... We don't feel safe ... I don't feel safe sitting on our porch."
"Defendants have shown a flagrant disregard for the foreseeable consequences of populating the real world with virtual Pokémon without seeking the permission of property owners," it goes on.
