EA has settled a class action lawsuit brought by current and former software engineers regarding overtime pay

Electronic Arts as well as current and former computer programmers in Electronic Arts' California studios have announced a settlement agreement on claims for overtime compensation. Under the terms of the settlement, the claims against EA will be dismissed, and EA will make a total payment of $14.9 million. 

Any portion of the settlement that is unclaimed will go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities and to establish scholarships at five selected universities for female and minority students interested in studying interactive entertainment. The five universities are Carnegie Mellon University, Cornell University, Georgia Tech, Stanford University, and Morehouse/Spelman College.

Settlement of the case, which is pending in the Superior Court of San Mateo County, California, must be approved by the Court before it becomes effective.
