Video-game company can pursue suit against Beyonce
NEW YORK (AP) - May 11, 2012 (WPVI) -- A Manhattan judge says a lawsuit by a video-game developer against Beyonce can go to trial.
The decision was made by Justice Charles Ramos.
The company, Gate Five, claims the superstar backed out of a $20 million deal for a game called "Starpower: Beyonce."
The Grammy Award-winning singer's lawyers contend they were within their rights to opt out of the deal because Gate Five didn't have its financing in place.
But the company says Beyonce knew it was ready to sign a contract with its financier on Dec. 6, 2010 when she pulled out three days earlier.
According to the New York Post, the judge said Beyonce should have given the company notice.
Her lawyers declined to comment.
