Accused The King of Kong Cheater Billy Mitchell Sues to Get His High Score Back

Infamous The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters character Billy Mitchell is suing Twin Galaxies for defamation. In April 2018, Mitchell was stripped of his Guinness Book of World Records Donkey Kong titles after it was discovered that he had been cheating. At the time, the disgraced former record holder vowed to prove his innocence with a mountain of evidence, including witness statements. It's been two years since then and Mitchell has yet to come up with the promised evidence, though he has gone forward with a lawsuit.

Billy Mitchell and his legal representation actually filed the Twin Galaxies lawsuit back in April 2019. They had to file within a year to comply with California's statute of limitations in regard to filing a defamation lawsuit. In September 2019, Mitchell and his lawyers said they would be forced to "resort to legal recourse" if Twin Galaxies didn't reinstate Mitchell's scores. Obviously, they did not do that.
