BIG SURPRISE ILLINOIS LAW IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL


The US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois has just declared Illinois' Violent Video Game Law and Sexually Explicit Video Game Law unconstitutional. 

The Violent Video Game Law was unconstitutional because the State could not show that (a)violent content in video games is 'directed toinciting or producing imminent lawless action"? or (b) violent video games are 'likely to"? produce 'imminent"? violence.

The Sexually Explicit Video Game Law was unconstitutional because the legislation (in particular, the definition of 'sexually explicit"? content) was vague and not narrow enough.
