Last year, Hawaii-based company, Total Recall Technologies, filed a lawsuit against former employee and Oculus creator, Palmer Luckey, for breach of contract. Now, according to PCMag, U.S. District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco this week has rules that part of the lawsuit against Luckey, which was filed last year, can proceed.
The media outlet revealed that Total Recall stated that it hired him in 2011 to build a prototype virtual reality head-mounted display and he had signed a nondisclosure agreement and pledged “not to use confidential information for his own benefit.” Total Recall noted that Luckey has taken the information he learned, the prototype and confidential information/material and passed everything off as his own.
Luckey, Reuters reports, disputes the claims and calls the lawsuit “a brazen attempt to secure for itself a stake in Oculus VR’s recent multi-billion dollar acquisition by Facebook.”
Although Alsup ruled that the contract claim could proceed, he has dismissed other civil claims brought by Total Recall Technologies, including fraud.
