Activision Blizzard's struggle to manage its messaging around California's Department of Fair Housing and Employment lawsuit has manifested in significant (and not entirely unexpected) ways.

What are employees saying? Why have reports hit the mass media? And why might the market react now (when it didn't last week)?

The Market has a lot to talk about...in Virtual Legality.
