The Chief Legal Officer at Blizzard Entertainment Claire Hart has recently resigned from the company. Hart announced her resignation on LinkedIn today, and had been serving at the role for three years.
This resignation comes amidst the Activision Blizzard lawsuit going on in full swing, although no connections between the resignation and the lawsuit have been confirmed as of yet.
For those unfamiliar with the matter, Activision Blizzard came under a lot of fire recently on account of sexual harassment and discrimination against women at the company. Many high-ranking officials within the company, including Blizzard Entertainment president J. Allen Brack have left the company, and new policies are being established at a rapid pace. This scandal also caused a public walkout among employees at the company’s Irvine headquarters, and multiple regulatory bodies have now jumped in to further investigate these allegations.
