The long-lasting lawsuit filed by Fortnite streamer Turner “Tfue” Tenney against popular esports organization FaZe Clan has finally come to a close thanks to a settlement made outside of court, according to Forbes’ Christina Settimi.

The 15-month contract dispute over both sponsorship opportunites and payment has now reached it’s long-awaited conclusion, and while no settlement amount was disclosed, it brings to an end one of the industry’s first major employment lawsuits.

“Faze and Turner Tenney are pleased to announce they have resolved their disputes and settled their litigations. The parties wish one another the best of luck in future endeavors,” an email statement sent to Forbes from both parties’ legal representation said.

Per the resolution, Tfue is officially no longer under contract or eligible to receive a paycheck, which he has been throughout the legal battle.

s1mple

NAVI is getting set to release a documentary that will follow s1mple’s life and explore his “ups and downs” as one of the most recognizable esports players with insight from former and current teammates, his family, commentators, analysts, and “many others” from the industry.

“I remember the time when we just signed a contract in 2016,” NAVI CEO Yevhen Zolotarov said in an official press release. “Honestly, now it’s hard to believe that it was already five years ago. For the esports industry, five years is quite a long period of time.”

“S1mple is a legend not only for NAVI but for esports in general,” co-founder and CEO of DMarket Vlad Panchenko said. “Therefore, the items that will be dropping during the NAVI watch party stream are also legendary and unique.”

DMarket has created a “unique drop-game” with exclusive items dedicated to s1mple to coincide with the release of the doc, and Natus Vincerewill be premiering a documentary about him on Twitch next month, to celebrate his fifth year with the brand.

Additionally, a NAVI watch party is also set for the doc, set to air on one of their upcoming twitch streams set to take place on September 8th at 11am CT.
