EA To Settle NFL Dues Of 2008 Now

Now if you purchased Madden NFL, NCAA Football or Arena Football games for Xbox, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, GameCube or Wii between January 1, 2005, and June 21, 2012 then there are some dues which you need to collect from EA. That’s right, according to a lawsuit EA needed to payback the owners of these games payout, for which they need to go online and fill out a form for receiving such thing.

This lawsuit dates back in 2008, when EA was blamed with violating antitrust laws by holding exclusive licenses with the NFL, NCAA and AFL, the charges that company admitted no wrongdoing and settled for $27 million. And this money can now be availed by the respective owners by filling out an online form to claim their damages. The deadline for this damage settlement was April but has been extended because few people applied; individual payouts tripled from the initial estimate.

The payout has been put on hold due to objections raised by investor named Aaron Miller, demanding settlement for the attorneys’ fees, while his initial movement was dismissed, his subsequent appeal is in San Francisco’s US Court of Appeals for the Ninth District. While the appeal is in process, payouts are on hold.

The payout will remain on hold until the next hearing on Miller’s brief which is due on October 7 and the response to his filing is due one month later.
