Ousted Bungie composer O'Donnell to get his stock back

Terminated "without cause" according to an arbitrator, Marty O’Donnell has already won one settlement against the Destiny dev -- and it looks like another is in his sights.
Newsbrief: As uncovered in a legal filing spotted by GamesBeat, ousted Bungie composer Marty O'Donnell looks set to be awarded his stock in the company, which he was stripped of when he was sacked by the company earlier this year. O'Donnell settled one legal dispute with the studio last month, which resulted in an award of over $95,000 for unpaid wages and benefits. That wasn't the end of the court battles, however: O'Donnell was stripped of stock in the company when he was terminated. Now, an arbitrator between Bungie and O'Donnell has written that he should never have been stripped of his stock in the studio and orders that it should be granted back to him. He was granted this stock as one of the original founders of the studio, and the only legal way he could have lost it is if he quit the company.
