As expected, lawyers for the ESA (publishers) and EMA (retailers) filed a motion for summary judgment with Federal Judge James Brady (left) yesterday in Baton Rouge.
The industry is requesting that Brady issue a permanent injunction against Louisiana's video game statute, which was signed into law by Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco in June. If the industry's motion is approved by the judge, it would bring and end to a situation that has become something of an embarrassment to the Louisiana state government.
As reported by GamePolitics, a temporary injunction blocking the law was issued by Judge Brady last week. GP readers can see the industry's memorandum in support of the summary judgment motion here.
