Destiny Composer Marty O’Donnell to Get Back His Founders’ Shares From Bungie

By   /   Aug 20, 2014

The matter between the celebrated composer Marty O’Donnell and former employer Bungie continue to gain heat, now that a judge has ordered Bungie to return shares to its ex-employee.

Back in April 2014, O’Donnell took to his Twitter and claimed that Bungie has terminated him without any apparent reason. Later on, it was revealed by court documents that when Bungie fired O’Donnell, it also took away his founders’ shares.

However, Judge Sharon Armstrong at JAMS, Inc. Seattle gave O’Donnell the permission for a preliminary injunction to retrieve his lost stock shares.

O’Donnell holds that it would have made sense to deprive him off of his stocks if he resigned voluntarily which obviously isn’t the case. On the other hand, Bungie holds that if O’Donnell’s shares are restored, he would be a “bothersome presence at the board meetings and in the company.”

Eurogamer reports that last month, US court ordered Bungie to pay $95,019 to its ex-employee, outstanding vacation time, and an amount of damages.

Now that the court has issued order, it would be interesting to see how this turns out to be. Making his way to the limelight, O’Donnell has worked on the background scores of titles like Halo and Destiny.

Destiny is slated to launch on Sept. 9, 2014 for Playstation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3.
