Court case between Phantoml0rd and Twitch begins
By Staff | August 18, 2019
Phantoml0rd is seeking financial compensation because of his Twitch ban.
More than three years after James “Phantoml0rd” Varga was banned from Twitch for misleading viewers over skin gambling, the former streaming star is finally having his day in court. Varga is suing Twitch over his ban, which he says was a breach of contract that caused severe financial damage and misrepresented his character. The trial began this week in San Francisco.
The popular former streamer had his Twitch channel deleted following a controversy surrounding skin gambling in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. In official documents filed to the court, Varga claims that Twitch gave no explanation for the ban.
