Dota 2 Pro SumaiL Loses Lawsuit Against Evil Geniuses on All Counts

Dota 2 pro and legendary midlaner Syed “SumaiL” Hassan has lost a lawsuit against his former team Evil Geniuses on all counts after a two-year-long legal battle.

The 25-year-old had filed a lawsuit against the North American organization in December 2021 regarding a contract he had signed with them back in 2016 after he had won TI5.

The news was initially brought to light by Richard Lewis, who reported that Sumail claimed EG had “taken advantage of a young, naive, and vulnerable” player through several poorly explained agreements, which unfairly pressured him to relinquish benefits he had rightfully earned during his time with the organization.

According to a recent trial report by Lewis, the jury delivered the verdict siding with Evil Geniuses on March 1st following a two-year legal battle between the two parties.

EG had refuted all the allegations made against it by SumaiL while arguing during the lawsuit that their former mid-player had been advised to seek legal counsel before signing the contract. They further claimed that EG did not impose any unfair terms on the player when he expressed his intention to leave the Dota 2 team and that they offered him reasonable financial compensation.

SumaiL has continued to be a part of the professional Dota 2 scene during the trial and is currently a part of the active roster of Nigma Galaxy.
