State of Illinois Must Pay Damages to Video Game Industry

| | Comments (0)
Judge Matthew F. Kennelly (US District Judge of the Northern District of Illinois) ruled that the State of Illinois must pay the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) $510,528.64 "for its unconstitutional effort to enact a law banning the sale of violent video games."
The ESA hopes the $510,528 will discourage other politicians from passing similar unconstitutional laws that lead to court battles.

The remaining $0.64 will presumably be used to fund the 2007 Electronic Entertainment Expo.
