Law firm Freed & Weiss that was collecting complaints from players of the recently shut down Slide’s SuperPoke Pets, a game that let players spend money on virtual items. Google acquired the developer of the game and then dissolved it, resulting in the class action lawsuit that they say now believe that the terms and conditions contract renders unlikely to succeed.

“We have appreciated hearing from many of you and, while this is unfair and unjust, there are just some situations where there is not a likelihood of recovery in the U.S. court system and we have found that to be the case here,” read a statement from the law firm.

Google had also offered to run and maintain a new app called SPP Lite, which would enable players to ensure the continued existence of their digital pets.
