Representatives of Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) have finally served a lawsuit on Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) alleging that he and other pro-Trump allies bear responsibility for the Capitol riot, the Republican congressman said Sunday.

Why it matters: Swalwell had been trying since March to serve the suit on Brooks. Attorneys for the Democrat said last Wednesday they'd hired a private investigator to locate Brooks.

What he's saying: "Well, Swalwell FINALLY did his job, served complaint (on my WIFE)," Brooks tweeted.

  • He alleged that the Democratic lawmaker's team illegally trespassed in the process, "accosting my wife!" He didn't elaborate further, though he added: "More to come!"

The other side: Matthew Kaiser, an attorney for Swalwell, said Sunday evening that "a private investigator had left the papers with Brooks' wife at their home," per CNN.

  • Philip Andonian, another attorney for Swalwell, told CNN the allegation that the papers were served improperly was "untrue." Kaiser added he looked forward to "reading the papers" should Brooks contest the matter in court.
  • Representatives for Brooks and Swalwell could not immediately be reached.

The big picture: Swalwell's lawsuit has also been filed against former President Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Rudy Giuliani over the Jan. 6 insurrection.

Editor's note: This article has been updated with comment from Swalwell's attorneys.

Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick sent a lengthy letter to employees late on Tuesday, listing steps the company will take to address widespread allegations of sexist and discriminatory conduct at the "Call of Duty" and "World of Warcraft" gaming company.

Why it matters: This was the most comprehensive message from the company, and a softer one than had been sent by Kotick's PR people and a top executive last week.

Ed Buck, a wealthy political activist and Democratic donor, was convicted Tuesday of charges that he supplied fatal methamphetamine doses to two men during "party-and-play" encounters at his West Hollywood apartment, per the New York Times.

Of note: A federal jury found Buck guilty of all nine felony counts exactly four years on from when Gemmel Moore, one of his victims, was found dead from an overdose at his home. Buck could face life in prison over his convictions.
