Bungie/Martin O'Donnell Lawsuit Settled; $95,000 Owed to O'Donnell

Recommended Posts

After a massive case brooded over Bungie and it's composer for over a decade, Martin O'Donnell, the lawsuit has been canceled pre-maturely, with a large settlement to be handed over to Martin.

For years, Martin O'Donnells rhythms filled our ears as we mowed down a hostile alien force in the game, Halo, however Martin was tragically fired in April after an incident between himself and the people he had worked with for over a decade. It was soon announced that Martin was striking back with a heavy lawsuit, but VentureBeat.com reports that lawsuit isn't happening anymore. According to them, Martin reached a deal with Bungie's president Harold Ryan to cut Martin a grand total of 95,000 United States Dollars. This money compensates for Bungie policies not enacted, law settlements, and other debts to Martin. He had claimed that Bungie and Ryan owed him for policies like unused Vacation pay and absence funds. 

Who do you think is in the right here, is Martin the innocent man who was fired without a just cause and owed what he earned, or is Harold being stripped of his profits as part of an unfair scapegoat? Let me know below, thanks for reading. I'd like to also thank the site Moderator RedStarRocket91 for posting this for me!

Payday for Marty Music. Glad that it's over at least.

Martin probably did something, but since they settled out of court Bungie didn't have a good enough case.

Daym..... that loss of money has got to sting.....
 
 
 
 
I wonder what Marty will do next ?
 
 
Maybe 343 will hire him ?
 
Or another game studio ?
 
Maybe he goes into the film industry ?
 
 
 
Who knows, but I am really looking forward to finding out. :)

New update

 

A court arbitrator ruled that O'Donnell get his stock back in the company. So that means he can sit on board meetings and the like.

 

Now imagine if 343 hired him and he sat in on the board meetings. :troll:
