The media circus around the West & Zampella vs Activision trial continues to rumble on, with Gamespot securing an interview with their attorney, Robert M. Schwartz.
Gamespot asked Mr Schwartz what supporting evidence he would be releasing during the hearing.
We have numerous damning documents, smoking guns, and admissions from key Activision executives that show they seduced Jason and Vince into entering this contract in 2008 [the memorandum of understanding] with no intention of honoring it. They betrayed them, and they abandoned them.
Mr. Schwartz said that the recent payment of $42 million was because Activision ‘looked really bad’ and that ‘they didn’t want the jury to hold it against them.’
Bob Kotick is also in the firing line with Mr. Schwartz commenting,
He is the central guy. He made the decision to fire them more than a year before they were fired. He never intended to honor the contract.
