This story keeps getting stranger. Former New York mayor and current US attorney Rudy Giuliani will serve as co-counsel for Activision's defence against the lawsuit leveled by former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega over his appearance in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
Giuliani issued a prepared statement saying; "What's astonishing is that Manuel Noriega, a notorious dictator who is in prison for the heinous crimes he committed, is upset about being portrayed as a criminal and enemy of the state in the game Call of Duty. Quite simply, it's absurd."
