Snippet -

ZeniMax, which earlier today beefed up its VR development capacity by acquiring Escalation Studios, had a partial victory in its lawsuit against Oculus, makers of the Rift virtual reality headset. As reported by Polygon, a Dallas, Texas jury today awarded $500 million to ZeniMax after finding that Oculus co-founder Palmer Luckey failed to comply with a non-disclosure agreement. That said, the court did not find that Oculus had misappropriated trade secrets, which was at the heart of the lawsuit.

Update snippet -

Additionally, more details breaking down the $500 million owed have come to light. $200 million of the total comes from Oculus co-founder Palmer Luckey breaking his NDA with ZeniMax, while Oculus will have to pay ZeniMax an additional $50 million for copyright infringement, and another $50 million for false designation. Furthermore, Brendan Iribe (former CEO, now head of PC at Oculus) will have to pay ZeniMax $150 million for false designation, and Luckey also will have to pay ZeniMax $50 million for false designation.
