The Gamers' Choice Awards Are Getting Sued Over Alleged Fraud

Last month, we were making fun of the Gamers' Choice Awards as being a hack-awards show trying to cash in on The Game Awards swagger. This month, we're seeing what could already be the end of the awards as the company is being taken to court. Variety is reporting that a producer of the show, Victor Borachuk, is suing co-founder Michael Burg over broken promises, shifting money, and fraud The paperwork was filed in California back on December 21st, and includes other award shows in the mix such as the Teen Choice Awards, the Southern Sports Awards, and the Kid's Choice Awards.

If the lawsuit succeeds and it is found that Berg and his companies were practicing business with ill intent, it's very conceivable that all of these award shows could go up in flames, if they're not sold to other companies. Which means this year may be the one and only Gamers' Choice Awards. We'll keep you updated as the suit finds its way through the courts.
