Gamer Files Lawsuit Claiming Muting Violated His Human Rights, Loses Badly

A federal court in Pennsylvania told a streamer he can’t sue Runescape's developer, Jagex, for muting him on Wednesday, as first reported by PennLive. It’s the final stop for a lawsuit Runescape streamer Amro Elansari filed against Jagex on July 10, 2019 after Jagex muted him, rendering him unable to communicate with other players.
