Los Angeles Sues Over Grand Theft Auto Sex Scenes

The City of Los Angeles is suing Take Two Entertainment and Rockstar over the pornographic sequences in Grand Theft Auto:  San Andreas.  As these sequences were not disclosed to regulators, the game received an M rating before it was reclassified as AO, or adults only.  The sit claims violation of the California Business and Professions Codes which bans misleading statements about a product.  The maximum penalty per count is $2,500.  The developers have made about $10 million from the game, so the fines are probably lunch money to them.
