Zynga's (ZNGA) legal battle with Electronic Arts (EA) just got personal. While requesting a judge strike down parts of EA's suit against the company, Zynga accuses EA of trying to make Zynga agree to a non-poaching deal (potentially in violation of antitrust laws), and claims EA's CEO has been feeling heat over Zynga's success. Zynga poached high-profile EA execs last year, but they recently left, and EA is now returning the favor. EA (like many other developers) accuses Zynga of copying one of its games.
