According to Reuters, Total Recall Technologies hired Luckey in 2011 to build a head-mounted display, later receiving feedback in 2012 on the product. Luckey signed a confidentiality agreement with the company.
Oculus was acquired by Facebook in its first hardware acquisition for $2 billion in 2014.
Luckey said that the suit is “a brazen attempt to secure for itself a stake in Oculus VR’s recent multi-billion dollar acquisition by Facebook.”
The judge did, however, dismiss other claims brought as part of the lawsuit, including an accusation of fraud.
The case will go to trial this year as a breach of contract claim.
