Federal Judge Enjoins Michigan Video Game Law

U.S. District Court Judge George C. Steeh granted a preliminary injunction to the Electronic Software Association prohibiting Michigan from enforcing of its ban of selling violent video games to minors.  Judge Steeh is quoted as writing "(Michigan) has been unable to demonstrate the perceived harm it seeks to protect against."  The judge also noted that free speech harmed if the law went into effect on December 1st.  Suits against a similar California law are pending.  So far, judges have struck down similar laws in St. Louis, Washington State, and Indianapolis.
