Rockstar & Take Two Sued

Gamemaker Sued Over Hidden Sex in GTA (thanks Mike Martinez) reports a New York woman has filed suit against Take-Two Interactive over the adult content that turns out to be hidden within the game that she bought for her 14-year-old grandson (in spite of the game's 17+ rating). Here's the latest on better living though litigation:
Florence Cohen, 85, of New York, said in the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan that the game's manufacturer, Rockstar Games, and its parent company, New York-based Take Two Interactive Software Inc., engaged in false, misleading and deceptive practices.

She sought unspecified damages on behalf of herself and all consumers nationwide, saying the company should give up its profits from the game for what amounted to false advertising, consumer deception and unfair business practices.

I think everyone is missing the point here. She does NOT have a legit case here. She bought something that was ment AND labeled for people of 17 and over. She bought it for her 14 year old grandson.

It's like taking a 14 year old to an R rated movie then wanting to sue the theater because it had a graphic depiction of a beheading in it.

I expect this to be thrown out.
