Schwarzenegger v EMA update

For all those cyberlaw/First Amendment profs following the “violent video games” case that arose recently in California, it was argued yesterday in the U.S. Supreme Court.  Podcasts and court documents are available here.  Judgment is expected sometime in the spring.  (And sadly Schwarzenegger is no longer the Gubernator…)

  1. I’m not sure why SCOTUS took this one. From the oral arguments, it seems like they’re pretty confident that the legislation here violates the 1st Amendment, which is what I would expect they would say, which means they won’t reverse the appellate court.

    So maybe they just want to write an opinion saying that video games qualify for 1st amendment protections?

  2. Best part is Justice Kagan casually and accurately referencing Mortal Kombat.

    Flawless victory.
