+ - Washington files first consumer protection lawsuit over Kickstarter Fraud->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "In 2012, a card game called Asylum was successfully funded on Kickstarter. Its expected delivery date two months later came and passed without a product. In July 2013, the company behind the game stopped communicating with backers. Now, the Washington state Attorney General has filed a consumer protection lawsuit against the makers. This is the first time a project from a crowdfunding site has been the target of such a lawsuit. The AG said, 'Consumers need to be aware that crowdfunding is not without risk. This lawsuit sends a clear message to people seeking the public’s money: Washington state will not tolerate crowdfunding theft. The Attorney General’s Office will hold those accountable who don’t play by the rules.' Here's the legal document (PDF)."
