Infinium Labs countersues HardOCP

Nuclear weapons just a matter of time

Florida-based broadband console proponent Infinium Labs has finally instigated a lawsuit against technology news website HardOCP in response to the latter's pre-emptive suit filed in Texas recently.

The escalating legal battle is over a HardOCP article last September which profiled Infinium's CEO Tim Roberts and delved - in a highly unflattering manner - into Roberts' past business history and Infinium's record to date.

HardOCP owner Kyle Bennett filed his suit with the aim of forcing Infinium to bring the issue to a swift resolution.

With the lawyers now deployed, this seems unlikely, and the battle is set to run and run. The punch-up also threatens to overshadow, at least to some degree, the forthcoming announcements about Infinium's plans for the Phantom game console and service which will lead up to the public unveiling of the system at E3 in May.
