State Superior Court Judge Elihu Berle of Los Angeles has agreed with Activision that one of Vince Zampella and Jason West's fraud claims against Activision should not be allowed to go forward. One of them still stands, however.

West and Zampella said that they were considering leaving Activision when their contracts expired in October 2008. They alleged that Activision made false promises to string them along and create “Modern Warfare 2,” which became the bestselling game of 2010, before firing them.

The two men accuse Activision of firing them in order to avoid paying them millions in royalties for the game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, however the publishing giant maintains that they were fired due to the two holding secret talks with Electronic Arts, which was in breach of their contracts. As such, in December 2010, Activision filed a $400 million lawsuit against EA.

A trial for any remaining claims is scheduled for May 7th 2012. The case is known as West v. Activision, SC107041, California Superior Court (Los Angeles County).
