Judge says video game addiction suit can continue

Craig Smallwood, 51, filed a lawsuit against developer NCSoft Corp. last October with several charges including emotional distress and misrepresentation. Earlier this month, U.S. District Judge Alan Kay granted NCSoft's motion to dismiss half of the eight charges, allowing the lawsuit to proceed.In his Aug. 4 decision, Kay dismissed the charges of misrepresentation/deceit, unfair and deceptive trade practices, intentional infliction of emotional distress and punitive damages.NCSoft still faces counts of defamation, negligence, gross negligence and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

And if Craig Smallwood even wins one count of this bogus lawsuit, he should have to be forced to live in a mental facility for 25years to life, without early parole.

You're a 51 year old man for gods sake, grow the F up or off yourself.

"NCSoft also claims that Smallwood was banned from his game accounts because of his involvement with real money transfers, which is forbidden by the user agreement and rules of conduct of the game."

Thats probably what it's all about and this lawsuit is just revenge.

Where are the judges brains? Why is he even entertaining this trash? If this Smallwood (HAH!) fellow succeeds, it's potentially doomsday for the industry. Oops I'm addicted to Mario, time to sue Nintendo.
