Supreme Court upholds ruling

  The Supreme Court has upheld a ruling that directly refutes Indianapolis and their law of parental consent and/or supervision of children while playing games that were labeled too violent. The law in Indianapolis was made on July 10 and forced retailers to divide games that were deemed to contain sexual content or violence from other titles. These alienated games were then presented with a sign that stated the law of parental consent.

   Game publishers and trade organizations immediately brought the law to district courts but the courts decided with the Indianapolis law. Once brought to the 7th US Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, the court favored with the game publishers and trade organizations that the law was a violation of our Constitutional 1st Amendment. The case was then taken to US Supreme Court where they upheld the ruling of the Court of Appeals. They made no further comment on the case.
