Sony has settled its breach of contract court fight with the actor Jerry Lambert. Lambert portrayed the “Kevin Butler” character. SCEA filed a lawsuit against Bridgestone and Wildcat Creek, Inc. on September 2012. The claims are based on violations of the Lanham Act, misappropriation, breach of contract and tortious interference with a contractual relationship.
Lambert agreed not to appear in any ad or promotion that features or even mentions “any other video game or computer entertainment system or video game company” for a period of two years.
This settlement applies to Lambert and Sony only. Sony and Bridgestone are still out in the US District Court for the Northern District of California over the issue.
