Garriott's NCsoft Award Upheld

The 5th US Circuit Court Of Appeals has ruled in favor of Richard Garriott, upholding a ruling from July 2010 that awarded the designer also known as Lord British $28 million based on the circumstances of his departure from the company in 2008. According to Develop, Garriott profited almost 15% from NCsoft's appeal, as the ruling is now for $32 million. Here's the court's comment: "It would be unjust to allow NCsoft to sit back during trial, observe Garriott's litigation strategy, and then demand a new trial on damages when it dislikes the verdict."

Great, now he has some cash to make a new UO type game. Or go to space.
He will go to space. He should go to space. Ultima was not only him, but a group of talented and hungry and hard working guys at Origin. There is no more Origin and its former employees have moved on. This chapter is closed!

Yep. UO was as much Raph Koster, Starr Long, and Rich Vogel as it was Garriott.
