Perpetual, Kohnke Resolve Dispute, Dismiss Lawsuit


Shacknews has confirmed that PR firm Kohnke Communication's lawsuit against former Star Trek Online developer Perpetual Entertainment has been dropped following a mutual resolution.

"The latest development is that the parties have resolved their dispute," a source told Shacknews. "The dismissal of the case was filed with the Court this afternoon."

A representative of Kohnke confirmed the suit's dismissal this afternoon. "The parties have reached an agreement, but we can't detail any further than that," Kohnke told Shacknews. "Part of the agreement was that we would not detail."

Earlier today, Perpetual issued a response to the lawsuit, remarking that Kohnke's claims were "vague, uncertain, ambiguous and unintelligible." Filed in December, Kohnke's lawsuit alleges that the firm is owed nearly $300,000 for its work promoting Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising (PC), which was cancelled last November.

Shacknews has contacted all involved parties and will update as soon as more information is available.

        Well... I didn't really think the P2 were going to come out and say because they settled this suit they can carry on making STO but it has been strange enough that I wouldn't have been completely surprised.

        If you can find out who the next Devs are, I'll tell everyone that former was always there...

          Hah, I'll see what I can do. In the mean time, I'll have to hold your family hostage -- you know, just so word of my fuckup doesn't break to the rest of the staff.
