As another point, though: if the outcome were in favor of the party(ies) bringing suit against SNEI, any account action against the party or parties that brought suit could be seen as an act of retribution - at best, a slightly counterproductive move, and at worst a retributive act that could be possible cause for further action.

Possibly, which is why SNEI would likely ban the plaintiff's accounts immediately and permanently upon learning of the users' involvement in the suit.  By not waiting for the outcome, the company avoids any accusation of retribution. It is perfectly legal and reasonable to deny hostile litigants the benefit of your complimentary services.
