MIBR owners to sue 9z over meyern transfer disputes
The esports organization Immortals Gaming Club, which MIBR is part of, has filed a lawsuit against the Argentinean club 9z over violations of the agreements on the transfer of Ignacio "meyern" Meyer. This was reported by Dexerto, referring to documents that were filed by IGC in the Supreme Court of California.
According to the information published, 9z has committed to pay IGC $35,000 for the transfer of meyern, which took place in June 2020, but has not yet made the payment. The lawsuit requires compensation for damage, which includes, but is not limited to the amount prescribed in the agreement.
Reporters received evidence that attempts to settle the case out of court were unsuccessful, and 9z did not respond to IGC's requests for several weeks. At the same time, the Argentine organization's representative said in a commentary to Dexerto that they are trying to fulfill contractual obligations, but are facing difficulties in transferring funds due to restrictions imposed by the Central Bank of Argentina due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It is noteworthy that the MIBR owners also intend to contact the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) to impose sanctions on 9z.
Let us recall that the transfer of meyern from MIBR took place on June 29, 2020. Six months later, the Argentinian had been excluded from the main lineup, and in May was loaned out to Furious, which he currently plays for.
