EMA Hails Game Case Victory12 Oct, 2006 By: Jessica Wolf
Entertainment Merchants Association president Bo Anderson Oct. 12 issued a statement in support of an Oklahoma City federal district court that ruled against the city's video game law.
The court recognized that the law is likely a violation of the First Amendment, Anderson said.
"Video game restriction laws have been enacted by state and local governments nine times in the past six years, and nine times the federal courts have blocked these laws from going into effect," Anderson said. "Rather than passing unenforceable laws, lawmakers should support existing retailer initiatives to enforce video game ratings to ensure minors do not gain access to video games their parents do not want them to have."
