According to the Hollywood Reporter
, "The multimillion dollar fight over Activision's successful "Call of Duty" video game franchise is on a path towards a trial after a Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday there are facts to support allegations that the game publisher defrauded two developers, Jason West and Vincent Zampella, by firing them shortly before significant royalty payments were due."USA Today
states that, "West and Zampella's attorneys can question Activision CEO Bobby Kotick", that'll be in open court, which will be an interesting meeting given that Mr Kotick has already questioned the ethics
of the developers.
