Madden Lawsuit Progressing Forward
Madden NFL designer Robin Antonick’s lawsuit against Electronic Arts is moving forward.
The lawsuit, which started in April 2011, will be going to trial on June 17. Antonick, an original designer of the series, has accused EA of withholding royalties and demands a share of the profits from the series, according to the complaint.
“We have very compelling evidence indicating that EA used Mr. Antonick’s ground-breaking code and design elements as the basis for both past and present Madden NFL titles,” said Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP partner Robert Carey in a statement. “Yet, EA has failed to compensate him as required by his agreement or give him proper credit for his work. We look forward to proving our case at trial, and we are very confident that we will prevail.”
