08:06 EDTATVIActivision Blizzard files response to Noriega lawsuit
Activision Blizzard, filed a response to Manuel Noriega’s opposition in the lawsuit brought by the former dictator and convicted murderer. Rudy Giuliani, former New York City Mayor and named partner of Bracewell & Giuliani, will argue as co-counsel beside Munger, Tolles & Olson at the October 16 hearing in Los Angeles Superior Court in support of Activision Blizzard’s motion. Activision Blizzard is moving to strike Noriega’s lawsuit on the grounds that the minor inclusion of a Noriega character in Call of Duty: Black Ops II is protected free speech. The motion to strike was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on September 22. The legal action seeks to dismiss Manuel Noriega’s complaint at the outset under California’s anti-SLAPP statute. Lawyers for Manuel Noriega filed a response to the anti-SLAPP motion on October 2. The Superior Court will consider the matter at a hearing on October 16.

10:48 EDTZNGAGlu drops despite Benchmark optimism about Kardashian game
Research firm Benchmark Co. upgraded digital video game maker Glu Mobile (GLUU) to Buy from Hold, based on optimism about the company's upcoming third quarter earnings report. WHAT'S NEW: Glu may report higher than expected third quarter sales and earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization on October 29, Benchmark analyst Mike Hickey wrote in a note to investors today. The company may also raise its fourth quarter guidance, Hickey believes. Glu's results are being lifted by the success of the company's "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood" game, the analyst believes. He has a $5.90 price target on the name. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Taking the opposite view on Glu Mobile in an article yesterday was a short-selling blog, TheStreetSweeper. The blog said it "wouldn't be surprised" if the company cut its Q4 guidance, as Kim Kardashian and other Glu games "are fading fast." Company insiders are "selling huge chinks" of the company's shares, added the blog. Northland Capital analyst Darren Aftahi yesterday countered by accusing TheStreetSweeper of "acting as a megaphone" for shorts in the name, trying to drive down the stock in a weak market, and producing an article that is "full of conjecture." The analyst said he thinks the company could beat Q3 revenue expectations by a large amount, potentially producing a "massive short squeeze." OTHERS TO WATCH: Other digital video game makers include Zynga (ZNGA) and King Digital (KING). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Glu dropped 4% to $4.56.
