The legal battle between Billy Mitchell and Twin Galaxies continues as a new counterclaim has been filed. This counterclaim goes over Mitchell much harder than previous filings, but once again calls into question the legitimacy of his numerous high scores, including those from Donkey Kong.
"Both Billy Mitchell and Walter Day knew that these score performances were fake, but [it] still included the scores on the Twin Galaxies Score Database because of their need for self-aggrandization, their avarice, and their desire to create perceived value for the database so that they could one day sell Twin Galaxies and the Twin Galaxies Score Database and take the money for themselves."
While Twin Galaxies' original founder Walter Day is named in the counterclaim, the bulk of the filings are squarely aimed at Mitchell. Mitchell and his team are yet to respond to the filings, but a hearing is set to take place on Dec. 11th, 2020.
