Another Violent Game Law on Hold
It didn't take long for Entertainment Software Association to sue Louisiana when that state passed a law prohibiting the sale of violent video games to minors. It took even less time for federal Judge James J. Brady to issue a temporary restraining order preventing the law from taking effect. A hearing on a permanent injunction is set for June 30th. So far, all state laws to the same effect have been struck down by federal courts.
Louisiana followed with another bill preventing the sale of sexually explicit games to minors. The ESA supports that bill.
