PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION AGAINST MICHIGAN LEGISLATION

Video Game Law Blog

November 10, 2005

Michigan's legislation (which bans the sale of video games to minors) has suffered a setback. The US District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan has granted a preliminary injunction which prevents Michigan from enforcing the law. 

The court ruled that Michigan failed to demonstrate the harm in violent video games. The court also ruled that the law would cause irreparably harm by stifling free speech. 

Similar challenges are underway against California and Illinois legislation.
