Access to Video Games

Joined with The Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression in an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court, regarding a California law that would limit minors’ access to violent video games (Schwarzenegger and Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association and Entertainment Software Association). The brief argued that the California act is a content-based restriction on speech that does not fall under any of the established categories of unprotected speech – and, as such, is presumptively invalid and subject to strict scrutiny.  The brief elaborated on why two Supreme Court decisions on which the California petitioners relied, United States v. Stevens and Ginsberg v. New York, were inapposite in this case.  [2010]
