Basically, @Marsback2earth called me and admitted everything, including that he was a fraud, and @ArnaudMattern and her fraud syndicate are now very angry. They are leaving the United States today and are threatening me to delete all tweets about them. Otherwise they will kill me. Mras said he… pic.twitter.com/1q9x81MSO2

One of the names included in the original accusation Arnaud Mattern, one of the two players, decided not to sit idly by and took action on the matter. But unlike the plaintiffs, Mattern did not use social media and filed the lawsuit directly in California Superior Court.
In the lawsuit, Arnold Mattern specifically named Fee and Ackert by their first and last names. He also mentioned a post from 2023, the day the game was said to have been played with markers. In fact, he was in his native France. After learning of the lawsuit, Fee once again took to social media to condemn Mattern’s actions, although this time Ackert chose to reserve his opinion.
