SCOTUS violent games bill ruling expected next week

Saturday, 25th June 2011 16:48 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Back in November 2010, the US Supreme Court Justices weighed in on the videogame violence bill written by California state Senator Leland Yee which was supported by the state’s former-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The case is to be ruled on by the end of June, so sometime by the end of next week, we should know something regarding whether or not California will be able to legally limit the sale of what it considers violent video games to minors or not. We’ll keep you posted. Via MTV. [pic]

    Does California civil code §§ 1746-1746.5 even have an abbreviation? Last time I checked, “SCOTUS” refers primarily to the “Supreme Court of the United States.” It might be less confusing to just refer to this law as the “California violent game ban” or something.

    @1 Yeah, sorry I had CA and case in the title, but I dunno what happened. Lemme fix it a bit. I am having copy paste issues from WordPress today – it keeps pasting in the wrong spot when I pull it from MS Word.

    Edit: K. That should be better. Chrome is a bit wonky when it comes to crtrl c&v, I am going back to FF I think. Had less issues with it with WP, TBH.
