Richard Garriott won the lawsuit that he filed against NCsoft, publisher of his now closed MMORPG Tabula Rasa, that shut down on February 2009.

The suit against NCsoft mentioned fraud, breach of contract, and negligent misrepresentation. Garriott claimed that he didn't leave the company voluntarily, something that affected his 400.000 stock options value.

Garriott wanted $47 million in compensations, but the Austin, Texas jury awarded him $28 million. This pleased Richard Garriott, who will probably go on a spaceflight to celebrate.
