    A decision has been made in a lawsuit brought in August 2019 by Nintendo Switch owner Zachary Vergara against Nintendo of America for selling defective Joy-Con controllers that begin to drift independent of user manipulation.

    The US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois ruled on Thursday that the case must go to arbitration. This means Vergara must have an arbitrator decide whether he is even allowed to bring suit against Nintendo or whether, upon purchasing a Switch, he consented to the terms of an end-user license agreement that requires arbitration for all claims related to Nintendo’s console and accessories.
