Columbine lawsuit dismissed

  It was announced today that the 1999 videogame lawsuit involving the Columbine High School shootings has been dismissed. US District Court Judge Lewis Babcock officially closed the books on the case, as it brought charges to Id Software, Nintendo, Acclaim, Activision, and seven other game companies. The lawsuit was brought about by the family of a teacher that was killed in the tragedy and on behalf of all other victims. Id Software's Doom was the videogame that was believed to influence Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold the most, and was specifically sited throughout the lawsuit. In the end, it was deemed that the massacre at Columbine could not be directly related with videogames.
