Update: “Bully” gets bullied

Following up on our Aug. 17 post: “Game publisher Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. was ordered to demonstrate an upcoming video game titled “Bully” for a judge to determine whether it violates Florida’s public nuisance laws. Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Ronald Friedman issued the order yesterday. The move is a major coup for conservative Miami attorney Jack Thompson, known for his crusades against pornography and obscene rap music, and now the video game industry.” (Mike Musgrove, “Florida Judge Wants To See ‘Bully’ in Court”, Washington Post, Oct. 12; Jeremy Reimer, ArsTechnica, Oct. 13).
