Merge Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. v. Thompson[edit]

Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. v. Thompson is a short stub article written from a single source from a flurry of news coverage in a month. This would not meet policies like WP:NOTNEWS or even WP:VERIFIABILITY. I don't know if this should be a delete discussion but it seems you could summarize and salvage that article by listing it on this page, between the other unsuccessful lawsuits from this disbarred lawyer.

I don't think there's anything to merge; at most it would be a straight redirect. The article on the lawsuit is based solely on a single source that does not appear to meet WP:RS. It's already adequately covered, with sourcing in this article's section "Take-Two reaction". The lawsuit article doesn't even identify where its filed or a citation (either docket or F.Supp. reference) where it can be found.
The lawsuit itself shows no indicia of notability. It was in a district court only (no appellate case setting any precedent); was settled (so no opinion that might be cited to in the future). If this was in WP:AFD, I'd be !voting delete. I'd start an AFD, but not while the proposed merge is underway. TJRC (talk) 20:18, 21 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I would support a redirect. It's certainly conceivable that someone would find the case name from a news article or blog or such, and copy/paste it directly into wikipedia. Fieari (talk) 00:24, 12 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • Redirect  Done. If there's anything worth merging it can be pulled from the page history. Beeblebrox (talk) 03:23, 13 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
