"After being banned from the PlayStation Network for hateful comments stated in Resistance's online community, Erik Estavillo launched not one, but two, lawsuits against Sony for infringing on his "first amendment rights" -- an argument that was shot down by Judge Ronald Whyte simply because "Sony is not part of the government."
However, what Estavillo lacks in civil online discourse, he makes up
for with sheer determination and persistence. In addition to Sony, he
now has both Microsoft and Nintendo in his sights.
Estavillo is seeking $75,000 from Microsoft for the "undue stress" and
"sadness" caused by his Xbox 360's RROD. "Microsoft should have to bear
the burden that is now put on the shoulders of this disabled
plaintiff," his claim states -- a burden that is equivalent to the sum
of 375 Xbox 360 systems, apparently. Nintendo is being sued for
interfering with Estavillo's "pursuit of happiness." And how exactly is
Nintendo doing that? "Deleting, blocking or prohibiting the Homebrew
Channel and Ocarina applications" via a system update."
