According to a report by GamesIndustry, a Los Angeles judge has dismissed one of the two fraud charges that were filed by Infinity Ward founders Jason West and Vince Zampella. More details are available after the jump.

The original suit filed by West and Zampella included two charges of fraud, of which a single one has now been dismissed. The remaining charge of promissory fraud will be part of the trial that has been set to begin on May 7th of this year.

The founders of Infinity Ward clashed with publisher Activision-Blizzard early March 2012, which resulted in the departure of West and Zampella from the Call of Duty developer. Shortly thereafter, they founded a new studio that managed to attract a large number of former-Infinity Ward staffers. A legal struggle between the Activision-Blizzard and the new heads of Respawn Entertainment has been dragging on since, with both parties claiming breach of contract from the other.

With these legal struggles enduring for almost two years now, what do you Elder-Geeks think? Is it time to put this all behind us, or are you looking forward to the upcoming trial?
