Posted Wed, May 06, 2009 by Savanja

Kotaku reports that Garriott, creative drive behind Ultima Online and the now defunct Tabula Rasa, has filed a 24 million dollar lawsuit in the state of Texas against NCsoft citing "fraud". Game Politics delves deeper revealing that Garriott was forced out of NCsoft and is now looking for a little restitution on a decision in which he seems to had been left out on.
