A Superior Court of California has given Activision the go ahead to pursue their lawsuit against Respawn Entertainment founders Vince Zampella and Jason West. The $400 million suit was originally struck down by Electronic Arts, Respawn’s parent company, for a reported lack of evidence, but Judge Elihu Berle has found enough ground for the case to go to court.

1 of the 4 major claims of the suit have been dropped, but the majority of claims against Respawn and EA – including that they met during Zampella and West’s Activision tenure with intent to move studios – still stand. The lawsuit is expected to hit the courts starting in May of this year.

    1. Same, and I hope that the verdict is such that everyone learns that you don’t publicly badmouth your employer or work to undermine them while still working for them – regardless of how bad they are. Quit first, then badmouth. Until you’ve quit, you need to be at least publicly supportive.
