For those of us who still remember, Kotaku has updates on whats happened:
- Tecmo withdrew Gag order, but didn't make it public, so Itagaki announced the withdrawal

(For anyone who missed out on the gag order, in summary it was a "You did damages to me by telling someone else" thing http://kotaku.com/5017476/tecmo-slaps-itagaki-with-4-point-gag+order )

- Itagaki was fired before his resigning date, so didn't get leave pay. As a result, sue amount increases

- Yoshifuru Okamoto taped the conversation between himself and the president

Company politics is crazy!

So it looks like Okamoto left TN too?

All the evidence points to the new president lying and Team Ninja employees not getting paid. The judge should make this quick so Itagaki can start making another game already.

I personally think this will be settled out of court if most of evidence is going against Tecmo. They'll probably just pay Itagaki a crap of money or employ him with raised pay.

Tape conversation, and translation

Hmm, sounds more like Yasuda was trying to find compromise to stop the company from loosing money.
