According to this GI report, ESA’s announced that Minnesota paid $65,000 in legal fees incurred as a result of the association’s successful challenge to the state’s unconstitutional videogame law.

“Minnesota’s citizens should be outraged at paying the bill for this flawed plan,” said ESA CEO Michael Gallagher.

“Minnesota’s public officials ignored legal precedent and instead pursued a political agenda that ultimately cost taxpayers money. Courts across the United States have ruled consistently that videogames are entitled to the same First Amendment protections as other forms of art, such as music and literature.”
