Judge Allows Lawsuit Against Oculus Founder To Proceed

A judge has ruled that a breach of contract lawsuit against Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey can move forward. Other civil claims, including fraud, were dismissed

Hawaii-based Total Recall Technologies said it hired Luckey in 2011 to build a prototype head-mounted display. Luckey signed a confidentiality agreement, according to the lawsuit filed last year. In 2011 and 2012, Luckey received feedback and information to improve the design of the display, Total Recall claimed. It said Luckey used information he learned from his partnership when he launched a Kickstarter campaign for his own head-mounted display called the Oculus Rift, according to the lawsuit.
