Wade Callender is Gearbox Software's former general counsel and Randy Pitchford's former close friend. Here's the only picture I could find of him.

Gearbox software is a game development company mostly known for Borderlands 2, its shady practices surrounding another game it developed, Aliens: Colonial Marines. Randy Pitchford is the CEO of Gearbox and a notable individual in many ways, including having the honor of having his own thread here. I highly suggest reading it. https://kiwifarms.net/threads/randy-pitchford-duvalmagic.27834/

On 11/6/2018, Gearbox software filed suit against Wade Callender alleging a number of financial woes related to him. Ironically, many of them reveal just how stupid Randy might be. Namely that he gives away company money in zero interest loans to personal friends and doesn't get them in writing. A bunch of it.

In turn on 12/21/2018 Callender returned fire with his own lawsuit. That lawsuit contains the allegations that you've all heard about, namely that Randy Pitchford essentially stole 12 Million, and exposed the company by losing a thumb drive full of private information and 'underage porn', and then destroying it before anyone else could see it, as well as a number of other dickhead moves.

Both lawsuits are attached for those interested, if you prefer to listen, legal funnyman Nick Rekieta did a read through and analysis stream.

The 3rd amended filing includes evidence of Randy Pitchford Mishandling Funds.

I'm really glad this is getting a Lolcow & Lolcow LLP thread, and not just a A&H thread. This needs to be documented all the way. One of these two idiots is going to be destroyed by this case.

Well done OP. Wasn't there also a claim that Randy had parties where men exposed themselves to children?
Yes, among the claims made by Wade Callender was that at 'peacock parties' men had exposed themselves to minors to Randy's 'amusement'

Anyone notice that Gearbox's Brothers in Arms games went on sale on GOG in a suspicious timeframe since Randy's got a lawsuit coming?

I call it "Randy Bitchford needs cash for Legal Defense so here's our old almost abandonware" .
They any good? I have no intention of buying them, of course, but I have sources.

Was Wade Callender the guy who Randy euphorically harassed because he was a Christian or was that another Gearbox employee? I'll laugh my ass off if the "Peacock Parties" thing is true.
he is.

I wish I knew how dirty Wade was. This is either two dirt bags throwing mud so they can make the other one look dirtier or its a guy reaching his breaking point and I can't decide which.

confirming this, Wade is totally the one Randy was harassing

I missed this part of the story, is it possible this was the inciting incident of the whole conflict? This is what got Randy to sue Wade?

That doesnt sound like it would go over well in Texas
Assuming the impartiality judges are expected to have, it'd only go over poorly if confirmed true.

But a lot of Texas judges are what you call "good ol' boys". So... yeah, probably gonna go over poorly.

I'm interested to see where Callender's motions to dismiss and consolidate go. I suspect Pitchford is going to end up on the wrong side of that, which means that any jury on this is gonna be able to hear all the shit Callender has to say about him.

It was a series of World War 2 games from a time where every other game was a World War 2 game. People seem to like them, but you've got no shortage of choice.
It waas the WW2 series you got in CoD and MoH were too mainstream and you didn't have enough friends to enjoy BF 1942
