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.

Damn straight Activision, squeeze those little rats for everything they’re worth.
Well this case just gets more and more interesting as time goes on. I can’t wait till May, to see the final verdict on this case.
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.
