Following our report last week that both FaZe and Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney were seeking summary judgments in their ongoing lawsuit, a New York court has ruled to dismiss several of the claims and counterclaims made by both parties.

While the lawsuit will still be ongoing this will streamline the arguments made by the respective legal teams and should speed up the resolution of the case.


The esports organisation FaZe, who were the plaintiff in the New York counter filing, had been arguing that Tenney had learned trade secrets while he was representing them.

These trade secrets supposedly included how to draw attention to YouTube videos via the use of formulaic thumbnails. As expected the court has dismissed this argument and the claim for “misappropriation of trade secrets” will no longer make up part of their complaint.


In addition to this the court has dismissed FaZe’s claim for “intentional interference with contract,” where it was alleged Tenney had encouraged other representatives to leave the organisation. The same complaint that is made in regards to brand deals and sponsors will remain under consideration when the court convenes.

FaZe Clan counter-sued their former player, Tfue, claiming he cost millions in lost income.

Finally, the judge also dismissed FaZe’s claim that because Tenney had publicly recommended that up and coming talent don’t sign with organisations like FaZe, he had commercially disparaged them. The argument that such opinions are protected under New York law and free to be expressed was upheld.

For Tenney’s legal team, the judge dismissed counterclaims for fraud and breach of fiduciary duty. All other counterclaims that revolve around the validity of the contract are still recognised as having potential merit.


Currently, Tenney’s case against FaZe in the state of California is on hold pending the resolution of the New York filing by FaZe. While these dismissals should speed up the resolution of the lawsuit there is still a long way to go before it is over. We shall keep you up to date with the latest here at Dexerto.


Future reveals insane custom Chevrolet truck

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.


With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.


Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
