Fortnite fights another dance court battle


(WIAT) — The creators of fighting video game “Fortnite” will have to battle a new court case.
Actor Alfonso Ribeiro is suing the video game company Epic Games, claiming they ripped off his “Carlton Dance.”

The dance moves were created when Ribeiro played the character Carlton Banks on the 1990’s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”

The lawsuit says the game creators unfairly profited by incorporating those moves into the game. Epic Games is also facing lawsuits from two other celebrities for similar reasons.
