The lawsuit between Turner "Tfue" Tenney and FaZe Clan has been the subject of much discussion within the esport industry, with information on both sides apparently coming in constant waves.
In a new interview with theScore esports, Tfue's lawyer, Bryan J. Freedman, spoke about the player's contract and FaZe Clan's immediate response to the prosecution's announcement. Lee Trink, CEO of FaZe Clan, said in late May that the talks had begun in September 2018.
Freedman claims that Tfue's team sent the desired contract to FaZe Clan before signing, which was rejected by the organization and countered by its own, apparently illegal, contract. The FaZe clan's initial response to the lawsuit claimed that it was the only party that had suggested a deal with Tfue and approached the pro player for changes earlier in the year, but was denied .
The first contract that Tfue's team sent to Clan FaZe was "as close to a legal contract as you can get, but apparently it was not enough to [FaZe]"According to Freedman, he then states that the organization" has put in place its own provisions that have made it illegal again ".
The lawyer also referred to the $ 60,000 that FaZe Clan reported to Tfue as part of its contract. "How you can trust their $ 60,000 figure as to what they won with it is illusory when you realize how much money the FaZe clan earns by having Turner on his team, how much advertising they sell, how many sponsorships they got because Turner was part of their team, "said Freedman.
Freedman claims that the $ 60,000 figure that FaZe claims to have made from Tfue is "almost laughable" and "a complete fiction." He claims to have "earned millions of dollars by sponsoring with Nissan and other companies" because of the popularity of such players as Tfue.
The lawyer asked why no one spoke about the provision of Tfue's contract that prohibits him from playing or streaming video games for six months from the termination of the contract. "I'm really surprised that this is not the part of the contract that people are watching and saying" wow, "Freedman said.
Freedman also has' challenge[s] FaZe to do what is right "and change his approach to the law and the way it would allegedly treat its players. It is unclear whether the lawsuit will be the subject of a lawsuit without settlement, but the settlement by FaZe could be a very likely outcome.
FaZe Clan has not yet replied to comments by Freedman.
