Meet Erik Estavillo. He likes playing Resistance: Fall of Man so much that he's willing to sue Sony Computer Entertainment three times over (once on appeal) for having his account banned.
Estavillo first filed suit against SCEA in July, alleging the company's total ban of Estavillo from the PlayStation Network constituted theft and caused him pain and suffering. He wanted $US55,000 in punitive damages and an injunction against all further banning. In September, a judge told Estavillo—who was representing himsel— to pretty much take a hike and tossed out his case.
Now, GamePolitics reports that Estavillo is at it again — this time with an appeal of his tossed lawsuit and a civil suit against SCEA to the tune of $US180,000. And he's still representing himself.
GamePolitics further reports:
Estavillo tells GP he is representing himself in these cases and, in light of his PSN ban, is playing the Wii (Metroid Trilogy) and Xbox 360 (Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe). Estavillo said that he loves playing as The Joker in the latter title and may be "a bit obsessed" with the character, adding, "I plan to wear a purple suit during my court trials. No joke!"
