Bitmob legal correspondent Victoria Mercer: California Supervising Deputy Attorney General Zackery Morazzini did not have a great Tuesday. His opening arguments in the case of Schwarzenegger v. EMA, which will decide if a state can prohibit the sale of violent games to minors, didn't seem to make much headway with the court.
"You are asking us to create a whole new prohibition which the American people never ratified when they ratified the First Amendment.... What’s next after violence? Drinking? Smoking?" asked Justice Antonin Scalia. (You can find a full transcript here.)
I got a chance to talk with the Entertainment Consumers Association's VP and General Counsel, Jennifer Mercurio, and get her impressions of the case and how it's going so far.
