ESPN journalist Jacob Wolf reports that Sentinels CEO Robert Moore has filed a lawsuit against Kroenke Sports & Entertainment.
Moore claims that Josh Kroenke, the Kroenke Sports & Entertainment head, violated an oral agreement between them in January. Their purchase of Echo Fox, as he said, was a direct violation of the agreement.
Wolf reports that Moore and Kroenke applied for a slot at LCS 2017, but were disqualified in October of the same year. Sentinels, formerly known as Phoenix1, have participated in LCS for two years before the league's transition to the franchise. Since then, Moore and Sentinels have been managing the Los Angeles Gladiators at the Overwatch League.
Moore also said that Kroenke did not reimburse Sentinels for the KSE Esports management costs, a subsidiary of Kroenke Esports & Entertainment. Moore says he has paid for some things out of his own pocket, as Kroenke has interrupted almost all communication with him.
The Sentinels CEO is seeking to recover his majority stake in KSE Esports, a subsidiary of Kroenke Sports & Entertainment in court, as well as compensation for losses incurred.
