Midway sued over Psi-Ops game

Screenwriter wants money.

Midway Games is being sued over its 2004 title Psi-Ops by a screenwriter who claims the character and plot were stolen from a script he wrote in 1998.

Both the game and screenplay feature government forces trained in psychic combat, with the lawsuit indicating that character details such as clothing, build and background are near identical.
