Blizzard's Chief Legal Officer Resigns After Three Years

This resignation comes at a turbulent time for Activision Blizzard, with CEO Bobby Kotick being subpoenaed yesterday by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). However, there's no mention in this post as to whether recent issues played a role in this resignation.
