Co-founder and former CEO, Kevin Bruner, is suing Telltale games over his exclusion from the company after being removed from the board of directors.
According to a report in the Marin Independent Journal, Bruner filed a lawsuit against Telltale back in February of this year.
Ousted from the company last year, Bruner remained on the board of directors, and, he maintains, the company was obligated to offer him support as he attempted to sell his shares.
Reportedly, Telltale instead ceased any and all communication with Bruner, and hired Peter Hawley to take over as CEO.
The lawsuit states that, “The net effect of Bruner’s alleged removal from the board of directors was that Bruner was deprived of relevant insight into the management and financial state of Telltale and the value of its shares.”
In response to Bruner’s case, Telltale’s lawyers described his actions as, “an apparent means of extracting revenge on a company already under financial strain.”
They also spoke to the current financial difficulties Telltale is experiencing. “The Company is now working to turn around the decline that it experienced under Plaintiff’s stewardship.”
Telltale is currently developing The Wolf Among Us Season Two, The Walking Dead: Final Season, and a Stranger Things game.
