The legal back&forth seemed to have been going in Interplay's favor most of the way, if Bethesda really won like this then either Interplay ran out of money to keep fighting the legal battle and fund that pretense of an mmo or Bethesda got some dirt on Herve and blackmailed him into accepting this rape of a settlement (one of Zenimax's bosses has a sordid history in this kind of thing- how hard can it be to bait a moustachioed frenchman with an underage prostitute?).
