Total Recall Technologies (TRT) had its lawsuit against Oculus
Rift recently dismissed with prejudice.
TRT had sued Oculus Rift because the Oculus Rift founder Palmer

This case is similar to ZeniMax suing Oculus Rift for a breach
of an NDA. ZeniMax won the 500 million dollar suit. That suit is on
appeal right now. Oculus Rift obtained a dismissal with prejudice
in their favor in the TRT case because an executive at TRT refused
to authorize the lawsuit. This went against TRT’s articles of
incorporation because a partner cannot act without all partners’
approval. A dismissal with prejudice prevents TRT from filing a
second lawsuit based on similar claims.
