sgamet – Pokemon Go : New Jersey Homeowner Files Lawsuit Against Niantic

A New Jersey homeowner has filed a lawsuit against Niantic and Nintendo for placing a Pokestop on his property without his consent. The man alleges that several players have approached his door to ask for access to his backyard. The suit seeks to become a class action where the New Jersey resident will represent a collective group if the lawsuit proceeds.

The lawsuit, if it becomes class action, intends to include…

all persons in the United States who own property (i) the GPS coordinates of which were designated by Defendants, without authorization, as Pokéstops or Pokémon gyms in the Pokémon Go mobile application or (ii) abutting property the GPS coordinates of which were designated by Defendants, without authorization, as Pokéstops or Pokémon gyms in the Pokémon Gomobile application.
