ZeniMax Versus Oculus Heats Up

Whoa, after months of hearing nothing about this lawsuit, a simple amendment just made things really interesting again. ZeniMax is now calling John Carmack a thief and, for good measure, the lawsuit also says Palmer Luckey is taking credit for ZeniMax's work.

"Instead of complying with his contract, during his last days at ZeniMax, he copied thousands of documents from a computer at ZeniMax to a USB storage device," the amended filing (below) alleges. "He never returned those files or all copies of them after his employment with ZeniMax was terminated. In addition, after Carmack's employment with ZeniMax was terminated, he returned to ZeniMax's premises to take a customized tool for developing VR Technology belonging to ZeniMax that itself is part of ZeniMax's VR technology."
