CHICAGO (AP) — The organizers of a Pokemon Go Fest in Chicago have settled a class-action lawsuit by dissatisfied attendees for about $1.6 million. Last year's festival in Chicago's Grant Park went awry when technical glitches prevented many fans from logging on to the augmented reality game. The problems forced game developer Niantic Inc. to issue a full refund for the $20 tickets and $100 in credits for use of the app.
