Dave Mirra sues Acclaim

BMX star Dave Mirra files a lawsuit against the publisher of BMX XXX.


According to a report on Newsday.com, BMX star Dave Mirra has filed a lawsuit against Acclaim that reportedly accuses the publisher of breach of contract, unfair competition, injury to reputation, false advertising, and invasion of privacy. Mirra initially agreed to appear in an adult-humored BMX game, but he retracted his support when he found out that the game's concept had been changed from what was initially decided upon. Though he was officially disassociated from the product before it was released, Mirra is still seeking $21 million in damages. Acclaim told Newsday.com that it will fight the lawsuit.

We'll post more details as they become available.
