Juju officially removed from Skullgirls due to confidentiality agreement breach

Juju officially removed from Skullgirls due to confidentiality agreement breach Juju was a Skullgirls character that was created by Lab Zero for the DLC character votes based off of suggestions from a fan named Ceemcneil. To avoid any legal issues, the company tried for some time to acquire the full rights to Juju and make her an option for fans to vote on during the polls.

The legal matters had since been resolved and things were looking up for the sniping assistant of Parasoul. Unfortunately, a confidentially agreement was recently breached by Ceemcneil and as a result, Juju will no longer be a part of Skullgirls.

Below is an official statement from Ravidrath over at Lab Zero games on the matter.

There was a confidentiality agreement in the contract Mr. McNeil signed, so I'm extremely disappointed that after working for a few months to get this resolved, the creation of this thread has ended any possibility of using Juju in the future.

We tried to get this resolved favorably despite continued disruptive and unprofessional conduct on Mr. McNeil's part, often against our own better judgment. His behavior in the Skullgirls community has made Juju an extremely divisive topic within Lab Zero and I soldiered ahead because I felt it was the right thing to do. But with this breach of confidence, none of that matters now.

To say that I am disappointed in this outcome would be an understatement.

This decision is final - sorry to all of Juju's fans, but I can't afford to waste any more of Lab Zero's time and money pursuing this.
