The servers are having some problems at least they are on PS3. I did have some issues connecting to them myself but to have gotten the banned message would indicate that you have been banned for things done on that account likely a good month ago. Being a PS3 player you really should make a separate account for your brother because someone did something that they shouldn't have to cause the ban. I know if it was me and I knew that I had done nothing wrong, I'd be pretty upset to have my account banned do to someone else's actions.
It may not have been something you where doing at the time, but something before ..
Either you Boosted, Lag-Switched, IP flooded, modded controller,
or maybe said you or a family member worked for Activision/PlayStation ..
Or, you could have had a seriously offensive emblem (yes, people do still get banned for those) ..
It amazes me how many players think the reporting system is broken or doesn't mean anything ..
If for some reason, you manage to second chance .. I suggest you use it wisely ..
