CIG/Crytek Lawsuit Proceeds

This court document has the Court's response to a Motion to Dismiss filed by Cloud Imperium Games in response to the lawsuit filed against them by Crytek (thanks [H]ardOCP). At issue is the use of CryEngine technology in Squadron 42 and a switch away from the CryEngine for Star Citizen, both of which Crytek claims violates their contract. Derek Smart helps identify the key passages, though the outspoken developer is barely less wordy than the original 22-page missive. It's the conclusion where we find the court only granted two elements of the Motion to Dismiss, while the rest of the lawsuit will proceed:
In light of the foregoing, the Court GRANTS in part and DENIES in part the MTD as follows:

  1. The MTD is DENIED insofar as it seeks dismissal of all causes of action alleged against Defendant RSI;
  2. The MTD is GRANTED insofar as it seeks dismissal of the aspect of Plaintiff's cause of action for breach that is based on section 2.1.2's "exclusive" grant to embed CryENGINE in the Game;
  3. The MTD is DENIED insofar as the request to dismiss the cause of action for breach of contract is premised on California Civil Code section 1655's implied condition and on section 6.1.4 of the GLA, and insofar as Plaintiff's claim for breach is predicated on CryEngine's allegedly unauthorized use in Squadron 42;
  4. The MTD is DENIED with respect to the Plaintiff's cause of action for copyright infringement;
  5. The MTD's request that the Court dismiss Plaintiff's prayers for relief is DENIED with respect to monetary damages, injunctive relief, and statutory damages and attorney's fees, and GRANTED with respect to punitive damages;
  6. The MTD's alternative request that the Court strike allegations in Paragraph 15 of the FAC is DENIED.

Legal analysis by Derek Smart? Does he keep his JD next to his PhD?
