You probably remember the big court case that the video games industry won in the supreme court recently. You know, the one that had everyone worried about the future of our great hobby. Today the ESA announced that it will be seeking reimbursement from the already finanically addled State of California for the attorneys fees that they incurred in defending Brown v. Entertainment Software Association. In June, the court ruled on an unconsitutional violation of protected expression and upheld the decisions of lower courts in the matter.
Looking to recover the fees for this battle seems like the right thing for the ESA to do. California persisted to defend the law while they were warned that it had been found unconstitutional in other courts.
