That's quite a lot of complaints. Maybe some of them won't stick, but if even one does, it opens the door for every other FLGS to claim for the same thing. GW may need to break out some new Primaris Lawyers.The latest chapter in the house of Games Workshops’ legal troubles is here, as they are being sued for $62.5 million dollars amid 6 criminal complaints.
Game store owner, and legal counsel David Moore has filed a criminal complaint in the US Federal Court of Southern Florida alleging six criminal violations of US law and is seeking $62.5 million in equitable relief from Games Workshop.
Moore alleges violations of the U.S. Law and RICO under 18 & 15 U.S. CODE, including but not limited to Fraud, Price Fixing, Tortious Interference, Breach of Contract, Unjust Enrichment, Restraint of Trade, Conspiracy and Antitrust Violations.
Or maybe not. SpikeyBitz has a post up with more details.

Most of the claims are ridiculous and/or the guy making them has no grounds to be doing so. (e.g. claiming GW infringed HR Giger's designs). The comments section of the post has a few guys in it that claim to be lawyers and they all say it's likely to be thrown out of court straight away.
I guess it all depends on how amenable the judge is as to how far it gets.
