Secret Bonus and Child Porn: Ex-Lawyer of Gearbox Sues Randy Pitchford

He accuses the head of the studio in a number of crimes.Update from 12:00: Pitchford’s comment was added to the text, as well as his words from the December 22 podcast, where he talks about a case with a lost USB drive.

In late December, former Gearbox attorney Wade Callender sued head of the studio, Randy Pitchford. The lawsuit concerns not only the gaming company, but also the joint real estate of both participants in this story.

Callender attached to the case many loud statements. He claims that Pitchford, in secret from other employees of Gearbox, wrote out a “secret bonus” in the amount of $ 12 million that fell into the accounts of Pitchford Entertainment Media Magic, LLC.

This is a particularly tragic find. These millions of dollars flowed into Pitchford’s personal accounts, although they could be invested in the development of the Borderlands.from Calender’s statement

Moreover, Callender claims that in 2014, Pitchford left a USB drive on a table in a Texas restaurant that contained not only sensitive corporate data relating to large companies like Sega, Sony and Microsoft, but also a personal collection of child pornography.

The disc found a certain unknown, who in the statement is called the “Good Samaritan.” After returning the find, Callender made a copy of the drive, but did not have time to examine its contents — Pichford returned the flash drive, and demanded that the lawyer’s copy be destroyed. In this case, Callender claims that he knows in general what was on the drive.

The statement of claim also mentions that Pitchford held private parties in which “adult men were exposed to minors.”

Cullender’s lawsuit is retaliatory. A month earlier, Gearbox filed a lawsuit against him on suspicion of “fraud and breach of fiduciary obligations.” The company said that the lawyer borrowed money from the studio in order to pay for the mortgage loan and education, but did not return the money. The statement of claim stated that the lawyer abused a corporate credit card, using it to finance personal needs, including family vacations and membership in a shooting club. Gearbox argues that Callender destroyed evidence of his loan.

Later in the media drew attention to the episode devoted to tricks and “magic” tricks podcast The Piff Pod from December 22, in which Pitchford participated. In the program, Gearbox head told about the case with the “flash drive” mentioned in the lawsuit of Calender.

According to him, he forgot the USB drive with the working papers in the restaurant, and there really was one pornographic clip on it. The developer described it in detail and explained that he had bought a video from a webcam model in order to find out how it faked the squirt effect.

This woman masturbated on camera, and when it seems that she has an orgasm, a huge amount of liquid flows out of her vagina.

I realized that this is not a sex worker. This is ****** [fucking] magician.

All this happened before I started to protect my data with passwords. And one guy who worked in the restaurant Medieval Times, found a “flash drive”, took her home and found the secret information about my company and future games. With pornography at the same time.

And because porn was on the verge of legality. The girl had the mark “Only 18”!Randy pitchfordhead of gearbox software

The link to the podcast was attached by the representatives of Gearbox themselves in their official statement about the lawsuit from a former lawyer of the company, where they called his statements “absurd and having no connection with either reality or the law.”

The studio also noticed that the Calender’s message uses “ambiguous clericals and quotes”. According to them, this indicates that the plaintiff is building the whole legal case on deliberate lies.

Randy Pitchford also commented on the situation on his twitter, saying he was shocked by the accusations.

We will win this case, but since the lawsuit is still being considered in court, I cannot comment on all this in detail. […]

As a father, I consider crimes against children especially repulsive. And it really hurts me that my former friend and colleague lied, accusing me of such nasty behavior. And all in the greedy pursuit of money.Randy pitchfordhead of gearbox software

Meanwhile, the former vice president of business development at Gearbox (2005-2017) left a mysterious message on Twitter.


Yes it’s true.
