Video Game Firms Sue to Halt Ban

October 18, 2005|From Associated Press

Two trade groups representing video game makers filed a lawsuit Monday seeking to overturn the recently passed California law banning the sale or rental of violent video games to minors.

The Video Software Dealers Assn. and Entertainment Software Assn. say the law, which goes into effect Jan. 1, violates 1st Amendment free speech rights, according to the suit filed in federal court in San Jose.

The suit names Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who signed the bill earlier this month, state Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer and others. Schwarzenegger's press representatives declined to comment because they hadn't seen the suit.
