This will make three posts over one lawsuit this weekend, but when Activision sues the sh*t hits the fan. While for the most part this lawsuit has very little impact on us gamers, it appears that we may now thank the legal issues going on for a possible delay of Modern Warfare 3.

In Activision's filing against Jason West and Vince Zampella they claim that the pair's actions were "delaying pre-production of Modern Warfare 3," and that they are using that delay as "leverage in their negotiations with Activision."

The filing goes on to say that the two are even more nefarious than originally thought since "as a direct and proximate result of this breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, Activision has been forced to commit additional resources to Modern Warfare 3." Yes, West and Zampella have made Activision lose both time and money.

We eagerly await the counter-counter lawsuit in which Zampella and West accuse Activision of touching small children and killing endangered species.
