Video Game Industry Moves For Summary Judgment in Oklahoma

Another busy week in the world of video games and politics...

Almost lost in the hoopla surrounding presidential hopeful Mark Warner's very cool Second Life campaign stop and the ongoing Bully controversy was news from Oklahoma that the ESA and EMA are seeking to have the Sooner State's law thrown out of court.

On Wednesday video game industry attorneys filed a motion for summary judgment with Judge Robin Cauthron.

Among other claims, the 25-page document maintains that Oklahoma's video game law is unconstitutionally vague, is not narrowly tailored and lacks a rational basis. The industry also submitted to the Federal Court a copy of Judge James Brady's recent preliminary injunction order blocking Louisiana's video game law.
