I am currently online on my cell phone playing a game and this games publisher / creator decides to ban me from chat. When I chat, I don't swear, be racist, or just being bad and or bullying anyone. This company decides to just ban me from chat. Can I sue them for this?
No. The first amendment is irrelevant in this situation.
The first amendment says that the government cannot restrict your free speech. The game is not the government. The game is a private company and they don't want you on their server. They have every right to kick you out.
No. You have no first amendment rights against a game developer.
I am NOT your lawyer. Do not rely on this advice or any other advice on Avvo to make your legal decisions. No attorney-client relationship is created by answering this question. Do not share confidential information with me unless and until I have agreed to represent you, in writing, for a specific matter.
The First Amendment protects you only from governmental action against you for things you say. You have no Constitutional right to say anything you want in a private forum. The app is free to block you.
