In the face of California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) lawsuit, Activision Blizzard has been at times defiant, empathetic, political, and more. Now, with the departure of J. Allen Brack, Blizzard head, they appear to be softening their stance considerably.

What did they say? And what does it mean for the future of the company and this litigation?

Activision Blizzard may have taken "Get the JAB" a bit literally...in Virtual Legality.
