Householder Sues Nintendo Co. Ltd., Niantic, Inc. and The Pokémon Company

A New Jersey man is going to federal court to keep Pokémon Go players away from his house. Jeffrey Marder, of West Orange, says strangers began lingering outside his home after the game was released last month. He says at least five people knocked on his door and asked to get into his backyard to catch a Pokémon placed there virtually by the game. The lawsuit was filed in federal court in California against game makers Niantic Inc., Nintendo Co., and the Pokémon Company. It seeks class action status for others who have had Pokémon stops and gyms placed on their property. The lawsuit says the defendants have "shown a flagrant disregard" for placing virtual Pokémon without property owners' permission.
