This couple sued the creators of Pokemon GO for ruining their lives



A lot of bad things have happened to people playing Pokémon GO.

But now a couple in Michigan have sued, claiming other people playing the game have "ruined their quality of life."

Scott and Jayme Dodich, of St. Clair Shores, say players have been trampling all over their lawn and peering into their windows, USA Today reports.

The Dodiches live near Wahby Park, which features at least seven Pokéstops and a gym, so it draws in a lot of players.

We don't feel safe... I don't feel safe sitting on our porch.

The lawsuit hopes to ban the game's creator, Niantic, from placing in-game landmarks near public property without the owner's permission. It's not clear how far away Pokéstops would have to be.  

The lawsuit also claims owners have a right to a cut of Niantic's profits. Considering the game made $200 million as of Aug. 10 (per Money Nation), that's a good chunk of change.

The Pokémon GO site advises against catching Pokémon on private property.

It's not the first complaint made about the popular app. The Holocaust Museum asked to be removed as an in-game location, as did officials from the Hiroshima nuclear memorial.
