Digital Homicide has been "Destroyed" seeks to dismiss legal battles

 
 
Digital Homicide is now trying to dismiss their court case against 100 Steam users after the company has been "destroyed" by Valve, who removed their games from the Steam storefront. 
 
James Romine, one of the heads of Digital Homicide, has stated that he intends to re-enter the workforce after the destruction of Digital Homicide by recent events. 
 
 
     As far as digital homicide? It’s destroyed. It’s been stomped into the ground from a thousand directions and use is discontinued. I’m going back into the work force and watching what’s really going on. Not gaming media gossip – the real stories are in the legal documents. Not talking about mine.
 
The company says that the reason that they are seeking a dismissal are purely financial, stating that they have a "very solid" case. Valve taking down all Digital Homicide products from the Steam store had cut out the companies income, effectively destroying the company.

Below is a recent statement from Valve which confirms that their games are indeed removed from the Steam Store, stating that Digital Homicide has been hostile to the Steam userbase. 

 

Valve has stopped doing business with Digital Homicide for being hostile to Steam customers.

  

At this time we do not expect to hear much more about the Romaine Brothers or Digital Homicide in the near future, as their legal battles are effectively over and they seem to have no plans to re-establish themselves as game developers.

I don't know what they thought was gonna happen. Valve has a legal obligation to protect its users from abuse like this and the legal right to refuse to do business with any developer.Quote
