Banned PS3 Gamer Sues

GamePolitics reports on a lawsuit filed by a PlayStation 3 gamer banned from the PlayStation network due to his behavior in Resistance: Fall of Man. The account of his complaint seems a bit scattered, citing first amendment rights, the plaintiff's case of agoraphobia, and that the ban "in essence, is stealing money from the player," in demanding $55,000 in punitive damages. All but that last part about the player's money seems a bit frivolous to us, especially the first amendment part, but we are not attorneys, so this is passed on in case something actually might come of this, since it obviously would have far-reaching implications if such a case was successful.

Fail. First amendment rights refer to the government oppressing you. Sony is obviously not the government. As a corporation they have the right to ban you from their service as long as they are not doing it in such a way that it breaks discrimination laws.
