West/Zampella vs. Activision Trial Delayed

The long-awaited courtroom showdown between Activision and ex-Infinity Ward heads Jason West and Vince Zampella has been postponed.

The trial had been due to get going yesterday, but proceedings - relating to West and Zampella’s dramatic exit from the company - will now kick off on Friday. The delay is the result of difficulties assembling a suitable jury pool.

Superior Court Judge Elihu Berle also ruled that the case must be completed within 22 working days. Attorneys had requested 30 days but the judge wants a ruling by 2nd July.

For more, check out the most recent news on the case, including details of Activision’s (allegedly) skulldugerous “Project Icebreaker.”

I'm surprised it's taken this long, they've released Black Ops and a sequel to their game in that time...

@4 Them winning would restore COD to what it was before they raped it. The quality of the CODMW brand has went down hill drasticly since the entire staff of IW fell appart. I'd love for them to win, maybe the game will become less stale with actual creative mindnd working on the game.

I guess they couldn't find a juror who hasn't played a CoD yet.

@5 I think they have to find 12 people who've never heard of CoD or Activision.

Remember what happened when they found 12 people who'd never heard of O.J. Simpson?

It looks like it isn't going to court anymore, which is a shame for anyone who wanted to know what really happened.

@16 I hadn't realised the space problem was that advanced.

ppl! Never trust 'The smile'. Nor should you trust people that hold your elbow or forearm with their other hand when shaking hands.

I was all for Infinity Ward back in the day, Call of Duty 4 is still my most treasured COD game, it was to me perfect in every way. MW2 & MW3 for story lines were good, but the multi-players were so-so.

So infinity ward doesn't matter to me since the team from COD 4 have all left. I hope Zampella and West, get all the credit and cash they should have in the first place!

AND next time please don't post a pic of that scumbag, I'm not gunna say his name, Hoe Dick! lol
