Former CEO sues Infinium Labs

Troubled Seattle video game company Infinium Labs is being sued by its former chief executive, Kevin Bachus, the company said in a filing this week.

Bachus, who gained fame as one of the founders of Microsoft’s original Xbox system, joined Infinium in early 2004 and resigned last November. In March, he announced he had signed on as chief executive of Nival Interactive, a U.S.-based video game company with most of its operations in Moscow.

Soon after making that announcement, Bachus filed a lawsuit against Infinium and its officers claiming he is owed $51,000 in back wages and unpaid vacation time. Infinium has refused to pay him, he said in the suit, which is currently making its way through King County Superior Court.
