Oklahoma Game Law Struck Down
The latest casualty in state laws restricting video games to minors comes out of Oklahoma.

This is in addition to the usual First Amendment challenge which was also a factor in the decision. Note that this continues the unbroken string of decisions that have gone against the states and municipalities that have enacted these laws.
