Newsday.com announced today that Dave Mirra has filed a lawsuit against Acclaim
concerning the game BMX XXX. Reportedly, the lawsuit accuses Acclaim of a breach
of contract, unfair competition, injury to reputation, false advertising, and
invasion of privacy. Mirra is requesting $21 million from the publisher, even
though he initially agreed to appear in the adult-styled game. However, after
finding out that the game had been changed from the initial product, Mirra
decided to officially remove his name from the title. It is difficult to see
what grounds Mirra has for this case, and Acclaim will be fighting the lawsuit.
