ESA to Sue Over CA Game Law

Industry says plans to sue to stop Calif. video game law (thanks Mike Martinez) reports on efforts afoot to combat the recently signed (story) California law against selling violent games to minors:

The video game industry on Monday vowed to challenge California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in court to fight a new law banning the sale of violent video games to children.

The trade group Entertainment Software Association "intends to file a lawsuit to strike this law down and we are confident that we will prevail," President Douglas Lowenstein said in a statement on Monday.

Schwarzenegger signed the California measure into law last week, but it faces an uncertain fate. Federal courts have ruled against similar legislation in Washington state, the city of Indianapolis and St. Louis County in Missouri, finding the laws violated free speech guarantees in the U.S. Constitution.
...
Several other states, including Illinois and Michigan, have passed similar laws, prompting legal fights with the $10 billion U.S. video game industry. U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton is leading a similar crusade on the federal front.

The Entertainment Software Association has launched legal challenges in Illinois and Michigan and plans to file its lawsuit in California in the next week or two, a spokesman for the industry group said.

Hey Agent, 1995 called, they want their one-liners back. By the way, your PPU analysis is wrong. The company isn't even named Aegis.. that's a fucking mythical shield wielded by Zeus. Oops!
