Back in April, former Halo and Destiny composer Marty O’Donnell was let go from Bungie after a tweet from O’Donnell confirmed his departure from the studio, while recent reports reveal that O’Donnell is attempting to file a lawsuit against Bungie for various unpaid employment benefits and damages.

Reports detail that a lawsuit from O’Donnell was filed against Bungie on May 1st, 2014, claiming that Bungie violated several terms of agreement for various employment benefits against O’Donnell, including “unpaid vacation, paid time off, sabbatical time and other benefits.” The lawsuit targets Bungie chief executive Harold Ryan for the unpaid benefits and other damages, specifically. Bungie also released a legal statement in response to O’Donnell’s suit, with the company denying all allegations leveled against the studio.
