Activision Wins Small Battle in Large Call of Duty Lawsuit

Publisher Activision took home a small victory in its longstanding legal battle against Call of Duty creators Jason West and Vincent Zampella earlier this week, convincing a Los Angeles judge to drop a fraud claim against it, according to a news report.

Bloomberg reports that State Superior Court Judge Elihu Berle dropped one of two fraud claims against Activision on Monday, though he let a promissory fraud claim stand.
