Former Donkey Kong Record Holder Billy Mitchell Has Permission To Sue Twin Galaxies

Uncategorized Admin 0

Billy Mitchell, the professional gamer and hot sauce purveyor who rose to fame for setting several retro video game high scores, is preparing for a return to court. As reported by Axios, the US appeals court gave Mitchell permission to proceed with his defamation suit against Twin Galaxies, the online video game leaderboard website.

In case you missed the legal tussle, the whole saga began when Twin Galaxies and Guinness World Records stripped Mitchell of his several of world records for Pac-Man and Donkey Kong after he was accused of using emulation devices to earn his scores instead of authentic arcade machines, as was required for these world record attempts. While Guinness would later reverse its decision, Twin Galaxies has so far refused to reinstate Mitchell’s records.
