Violent Video Game Ban Rejected in CA Again

Share |

The US Supreme Court ruled that California's ban on the sale or rental of violent video games to minors is unconstitutional.  California State Senator Leland Yee (D – San Francisco) has apparently vowed to continue fighting against violent video games.

"Holding: California’s ban on the sale or rental of violent video games to minors is unconstitutional. The Court held that the law imposes a restriction on the content of protected speech and cannot satisfy strict scrutiny.

Judgment: Affirmed, 7-2, in an opinion by Justice Antonin Scalia on June 27, 2011. Justice Alito filed an opinion concurring in the judgment, which was joined by the Chief Justice Roberts. Justices Thomas and Breyer filed dissenting opinions."
