Judge: Video Game Company Can Sue Beyonce

Company says Beyonce knew it was ready to sign a contract with its financier on Dec. 6, 2010 when she pulled out three days earlier.

NEW YORK (AP) -- A New York judge says a lawsuit by a video game developer against Beyonce can go to trial.

Gate Five claims the superstar backed out of a $20 million deal for a game called "Starpower: Beyonce."

The Grammy Award-winning singer's lawyers contend they were within their rights to opt out of the deal because Gate Five didn't have its financing in place.

But the company says Beyonce knew it was ready to sign a contract with its financier on Dec. 6, 2010 when she pulled out three days earlier.

According to the New York Post, the judge said Beyonce should have given the company notice.

Her lawyers declined to comment.
