The Serial Suer Strikes Again – Subpoenas Bill Gates

1 min read

BillGates You all remember Erik Estavillo, the litigative troll who’s issued just about every game-related company imaginable with a lawsuit? Seems like he’s still riding the crazy train, as he’s subpoenaed yet another celebrity .

Not content with just bugging Depeche Mode’s Martin Lee Gore and Winona Ryder, he’s now called upon former Microsoft CEO and philanthropist Bill Gates. Excuse me while I rest my weary head in my hands.

The subpoena would have Billy Boy bring “documents pertaining to the true and relative number of actual Xbox 360 units that have been fixed by Microsoft over the past 3 years.”

Estavillo would also like statistical data showing the true number of Xbox 360s that experienced the RROD (or other break-downs) and data on the actual number of people banned from Xbox Live for “piracy” for the past year. Wouldn’t we all, you dodgy little crackpot?

I don’t quite know why Estavillo’s tasked Bill Gates – who was in no way involved in Xbox R&D and stepped down as CEO around the time the 360 launched – but sanity isn’t something we’ve come to expect from this assclown.

      Probably needs it for something the aliens on the mothership hovering near the Andromeda galaxy have asked him to.

    “Estavillo sent us a copy of the subpoena, dated November 30 and filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.”

    Crazy? No. Just having fun getting his name known and having his 15mins of fame.

    I would absolutely piss myself if Gates turns it around
    and sues the crap out of him. Come on Bill, you’ve got
    the money. Put it to good use :biggrin:
