id co-founder suing former colleagues

Filed under
Gaming

id Software co-founder Adrian Carmack (no relation to John Carmack, id's lead programmer) has launched a lawsuit against his former company, claiming that a decision to turn down an US$105 million buyout offer from Activision cost him US$30 million. Adrian holds a 41 percent stock ownership in id Software, a private company.

Adrian has alleged that after the deal was rejected, his co-workers deliberately made efforts to push him out of the company, monitoring his hours, stripping him of privileges and denying him access to company documents. He left the company last year, and it was widely reported that he had retired from the business. However, Adrian now alleges that the retirement was not voluntary on his part.
