Oculus Gets the Court to Dismiss a Breach of Contract Lawsuit

Posted by at 8:49 am on March 13, 2017

Oculus has one more lawsuit of its way.  The  breach of contract suit levied against the company by Total Recall Technologies has been dismissed. Back in 2015, Total Recall Technologies claimed that Oculus founder Palmer Luckey had violated a confidentiality agreement back he signed back in 2011.

The complaint originally claimed that Luckey was paid to build a prototype virtual reality headset for Total Recall Technologies. This would have been an exclusive product for TRT and would have fallen under the company’s own intellectual property. This lawsuit appeared as Oculus was gearing up to announce the launch version of the Oculus Rift.

The case did bare some similarities to the lawsuit ZeniMax filed against Oculus. But the ruling in that case did not go Oculus way.  ZeniMax was awarded a $500 million payout for a breach of NDA regarding a VR version of Doom 3 running on an Oculus prototype.

In a statement given to TechCrunch,, an Oculus Spokesperson said that the company is “pleased with the court’s ruling to dismiss TRT’s case”. The case was dismissed with prejudice, meaning Total Recall Technologies can’t file a second lawsuit against Oculus with the same allegations.
