Tesseraction Games has won a summary judgment against its European publishing partner, UK-based GMX Media , for breach of contract.  TAG filed the suit in the District Court of Oregon after alleging GMX had breached several terms of their distribution agreement for "Engima Rising Tide," including failing to produce timely and accurate sales and royalty accounts, failing to pay royalties and distributing Enigma in countries other than those agreed to in the distribution agreement. 

The judgment is 2 years in the making and several parts of the suit that were dismissed by the Oregon court due to lack of jurisdiction (GMX is a UK-based company) are being re-filed in UK courts.

No word on what kind of damages TAG will be awarded but their intial estimate of damages was over a million dollars.  We'll keep you updated on the award and on the cases' progress through the UK courts.
