Eagle Forum Legislative Alerts
Monday, April 26, 2010
Eagle Forum urged the U.S. Supreme Court to allow States to prohibit the sale and rental of violent video games to children, and Monday morning the Supreme Court agreed to consider this matter. Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund was the only group to file a timely amicus brief (PDF) in this case, and the U.S. Supreme Court accepts only about 1% of appeals for review. We are thrilled that the Supreme Court may now overturn the judicial activism by lower federal courts that have invalidated restrictions on violent video games, games that even reward youngsters for playing the role of terrorists.
