Lawsuit expenses continue to mount

Zampella & West protest the situation
Jason West and Vince Zampella, formerly of Infinity Ward and now of Respawn Entertainment, have filed information with the court that states their growing displeasure at the mound of expenses resulting from the lawsuit with Activision. West and Zampella were terminated by Activision from their positions at Infinity Ward.

According to the filing, the court expenses have already exceeded the pair’s combined salaries. In addition, the pair would like to move to resolve the matter quickly and reduce the mass of what is becoming a very protracted process.

Activision’s latest move in this lawsuit claims that both West and Zampella met with Electronic Arts several months prior to their termination from Infinity Ward, and already had a publishing deal together with EA before leaving Activision. This deal is what later came to be Respawn Studios and that now enjoys a distribution agreement with EA.

Activision has deep pockets and smart attorneys and will continue to volley additional pleadings and motions at West and Zampella to force them to incur more court expenses and attorney fees; this may also motivate West and Zampella to decide to settle the case more quickly.  We will watch to see how long the judge allows this paper war to continue and how soon the case is set for trial.
