Judge rules West and Zampella have enough evidence against Activision to go to trial

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday that there was sufficient evidence to support Jason West and Vincent Zampella’s case against Activision, therefore the case will be going to trial.

According to court documents obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, the judge felt there was enough evidence to support the March 2010 claim Activision defrauded the duo by firing them before having to cut a royalty check for Modern Warfare 2.

In March, a superior court judge ruled that Activision also had sufficient claims against Electronic Arts, which it claimed were courting the duo in a secretive manner.

A trial will likely be set for the end of the year or early next year, so don’t expect any of this to be resolved soon.
