Blizzard Entertainment Chief Legal Officer Resigns Amid Lawsuit

The Chief Legal Officer at Blizzard Entertainment, Claire Hart left the company last Friday after filling the role for three years.

"After more than three years at Blizzard Entertainment, I have decided to move on to my next adventure. Friday was my last day," she wrote. "The past three years have been full of unexpected twists and turns, but I feel honored to have worked with and met so many great people at Blizzard and across the Activision Blizzard businesses."

While Hart departed amidst the harassment lawsuit at Activision Blizzard, she didn't mention it in relation to her resignation.

Separate from the previous lawsuit, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is now investigating Activision Blizzard for how it handled allegations of sexual misconduct and workplace discrimination. The SEC has subpoenaed Activision, including CEO Bobby Kotick, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The SEC also requested documents from the company's board meetings from 2019, former employees' personnel files, separation agreements the company made this year, and communication logs between Kotick and other Activision senior executives, especially those related to sexual harassment and discrimination complaints.
