CA Reimbursements to ESA Grow

The Entertainment Software Association announces that the state of California has agreed to reimburse them $950,000 for legal fees incurred from their recent U.S. Supreme Court victory in Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association (previously Schwarzenegger v. Entertainment Merchants Association). They quantify how much they have collected over the years in reimbursed court costs: "Including reimbursements already paid from the two California lower court rulings, the state will have paid $1,327,000 to ESA. Other states attempts to unconstitutionally regulate video games resulted in ESA receiving $1,773,000, totaling $3.1 million in legal fees paid to ESA." They say they will donate a portion of the proceeds to develop after-school educational programs for underserved communities in Oakland and Sacramento.

Maybe now they won't be so quick to jump on the anti-gaming bandwagon.

It's not their money and they didn't earn it, so this was no loss on them.

Exactly. In fact, to them it was free publicity. Don't look for it to stop anytime soon. The other court cases haven't stopped them yet.
