Interview: ECA General Counsel Jennifer Mercurio on Schwarzenegger v. EMA

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.

The story is too old to be commented.

That's crazy that these things take so long. If I were a judge, I think I could figure this out in a couple of days!
