Garriott suing NCSoft for $27 million
From Ars Technica:
Richard Garriott is suing his former employer NCSoft, claiming that the publisher terminated his contract causing him to lose millions in stock options.According to Garriott's complaint (via GamePolitics), while his leaving the company was widely reported to be voluntary, he was, in fact, terminated. The complaint alleges that "Chris Chung, President of NCSoft's North American operations, informed Mr. Garriott that NCSoft has decided to 'part company.' Although Mr. Garriott objected to his dismissal, Mr. Chung insisted that the decision was final—Mr. Garriott had to go."
Wow ... What took him so long to sue!?

They're toting this one up as a "voluntary" departure.
If they can hold that defense - there's probably not much he can do about any sort of stock options, etc.
~No severance pay for quitters, etc.And thus it was spoken by the mighty Uss. And it was so.
