    ps3 Banned PSN player appeals court decision, sues Sony again for $180k

    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Erik Estavillo made headlines in the gaming blogosphere last summer for his $55,000 lawsuit against Sony, launched in retaliation for being banned from the PlayStation Network. As predicted, the judge dismissed his case after determining the First Amendment did not apply to Estavillo's claim.

    Estavallo isn't going to be stopped by a mere district judge's ruling, though. In addition to filing an appeal, Estavillo is also filing another lawsuit against Sony -- this time, a civil suit seeking $180,000 in damages; more than three times the amount of his original, dismissed suit. According to GamePolitics, Estavillo will once again opt out of using a lawyer, choosing to represent himself for both upcoming cases. We wish Estavillo the best of luck.*

    Well you know what they say, a man that is his own lawyer has a fool for a client.

    So.. One man with no lawyer versus a multi-billion dollar company with many sharp lawyers, eh?

    Sounds a little stupid if you ask me.

    Not really. It's costing sony a lot to fight this, while it's only costing duder his time & court fees.

    Also, it doesn't say that he's getting any help, while he might be his own lawyer, doesn't mean he didn't hire a law firm to gather his facts.

    Plus now he's doing a civil lawsuit which the bar for proving it is a lot lower.

    Wouldn't be surprised if sony tried to reach an agreement.
