Milwaukee County to Pay $83,000 to Candy Lab AR, We all Remember the Summer of Pokemon Go

Milwaukee County will settle in a lawsuit coming from a game developer that provoked a rule which requires getting permits for Pokemon Go to be played in parks.

Under the agreement, the County must pay $83,000 to the California-based developer Candy Lab Inc.

The County Supervisor Eddie Cullen said that this is an “I told you so” moment. Note that Cullen is a Pokemon Go player, and he voted against this law. He said that this amount of money should be spent on park maintenance.

The ordinance came in response to the parks department’s inability in July and August 2016 to hold Niantic Inc. and its Pokémon franchise financially accountable for thousands of dollars in damage done at Lake Park by daily throngs of players,” explains Don Behm, from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

In July, a federal judge agreed with the arguments Candy Lab had, that the law completely violated its free speech right.

Candy Lab sued Milwaukee County in April in a federal district court in Milwaukee.
