Man sues IBM over firing, says he's an Internet addict

A man who was fired by IBM for visiting an adult chat room at work is suing the company for $5 million, claiming he is an Internet addict who deserves treatment and sympathy rather than dismissal.
Probably a somewhat touchy subject, since I know that a few Goodjers in the past have had issues with internet-use and their jobs. Still, strikes me as overwhelmingly silly. Plus, man, who really wants to take on IBM lawyers?
