1 billion doesn't sound all that far fetched when you consider last report on MW 2 profits were 1.5 billion. It may not be the amount they actually get, but I don't think them suing for that much would be all that crazy considering all the people royalties and bonuses are owed to.
There's also the fact that Activision wasn't even supposed to release any CoD/MW content without IW's consent, but they went on to do it more than once with expansions and such made by other teams. So part of the suit could be for equivalent damages vs actual profits lost in royalties and bonuses.
In cases such as these, monetary amounts can pile up faster than medical expenses for the terminally ill.
This looks like media fact from the guts, there is no source that I can see, sorry. Obviously they won't get what they ask for, but something at least.
