About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

The documents cover various periods beginning on October 1, 2001 and also relate to: the submission of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas to the Entertainment Software Rating Board for a rating, and the company's disclosures regarding hot coffee; disclosures and presentations by the company of certain events, including acquisitions, partnering arrangements and earnings results; invoices from, payments to, and termination of PricewaterhouseCoopers and retention of Ernst & Young LLP; acquisitions by the company in 2005; certain compensation and human resources documents with respect to the company and certain of its current and former officers and directors; and documents concerning the activities of the company's Board of Directors and Committees thereof.

Take-Two has not been advised that it or any specific individual is presently a target of the investigation and is fully cooperating and providing the requested documents.
