No money, no 15 minutes of fame
You haven't forgotten about ol' Erik Estavillo, have you? Last we heard from this professional/serial suer, he was targeting video game news entities -- talk about biting the hand that feeds. Anyway, we said that we would no longer write about his exploits because of this.
So why are we mentioning his name again? Because Estavillo has announced his decision to drop all lawsuits, against the press and industry.
Apparently, Estavillo's many ailments (OCD, Agoraphobia, Panic Disorder, depression and Crohn's Disease) were finally taking a toll, and he claims his doctors suggested he drop his long list of legal complaints for his own health.
Of course, another major factor is money, which Estavillo was running out of; he could no longer afford the process server fees needed for subpoenaing everyone on the planet, including Bill Gates, Winona Ryder, and Martin Lee Gore (Depeche Mode). Guess his vast life experiences not teach him that legal shenanigans cost lots of money.
