Who would sue Microsoft over the Xbox Live outage?

Not from Texas, but they are d-bags.

I’m just as pissed as everyone else over the Xbox Live outage over the holidays, but suing Microsoft probably isn’t going to get you very far. The three douches from Texas who are suing Microsoft are seeking an excess of $5 million in damages. That alone warrants some finger pointing and name calling, but their lawyer is an even bigger d-bag. Why? Check out his fantasmic quote about how these guys aren’t looking to get rich. Yeah right, dude. Are the millions of other Xbox Live users going to get a cut of that dough? No.

These are not guys looking to get rich,” Gibson said in a telephone interview from Houston Tuesday. “They are in their late 20s and 30s. They are college-educated. These are not young kids who just turned 18 and [want] to sue for the fun of it. This is, to them, a real issue.

Nice try, guys.
