Wizards of the Coast have put out a press releases detailing a lawsuit that was brought out against them from a small group of individuals who are judges at Magic: The Gathering tournaments.
The suit claims that since these judges are overseeing play at different tournaments that they in fact should be considered employees of Wizards of the Coast.
However, Wizards points out that they do not pay these judges except for the major championships that they actually run. The other small tournaments are run from local game stores and the stores coordinate the judges for these tournaments.
The full explanation from Wizards of the Coast can be found HERE. This does lead to an interesting question at what point is a person considered in the employment of an organization?
