Former employees of Factor 5 are suing the company's founders over unpaid wages. Factor 5, whose US-based studio was closed down in May, are accused of transferring source code and assets to another studio called White Harvest before declaring bankruptcy. The employees' lawyer James Smith spoke:
"We allege in the suit that Factor 5 and its three founders fraudulently transferred intellectual property to Blue Harvest, which is now known as White Harvest. We believe that Factor 5 and White Harvest are essentially the same company, being run by the same people, being represented by the same sets of lawyers, with all the same management and ownership and control, performing all the same work that they were doing at Factor 5, just now with a new name and a new address."
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron has been mentioned among the games associated with the fraud. 69 claims are being made in all, for wages totaling $900,000 which were never paid.
