Netflix 'Poaching' Former Activision CFO Triggers Lawsuit


Personnel changes within major corporations is something that has been going on for years.


However, sometimes one of the parties feels there has been an unlawful practice being made.

This is the case with the former CFO of Activision, who was recently hired by Netflix.

Activision has claimed this was a case of 'poaching' and has thus filed a lawsuit against Netflix.

Here's the report. 



The original report regarding the lawsuit was posted in The Hollywood Reporter, which can be found here.

The person in question is Spencer Neumann, who was the former CFO at Activision. 

They have now taken a role within Netflix, and Activision has claimed the following according to The Hollywood Reporter: 


Netflix’s unlawful behavior with regards to Neumann is no anomaly

To the contrary, Netflix has a demonstrated pattern of caring only about attracting and employing whoever Netflix wants, regardless of whether it violates the law along the way

As well, THR has noted Activision is suing for intentional interference with contract, unfair competition, and aiding and abetting breach of fiduciary duty.

We will have to wait and see what is the overall outcome of this lawsuit.

This will definitely not be the last time we see two companies of this magnitude sue each other.
