News > Video Game Legislation on Court TV
August 24, 2007
Fire up the Tivo!
Court TV’s Star Jones will examine video game violence and video game legislation at 3:00 P.M. Eastern Time today.
UPDATE: GP has learned that California State Senator Leland Yee will be on the program. Yee, of course, was the architect of his state’s 2005 video game law which was recently declared unconstitutional by a federal court judge.
We understand that Katherine Fallow, an attorney who has helped defend the video game industry against legislation, will be on as well.
Not appearing: Jack Thompson, who writes in a comment to this GP article:
I was scheduled last night and this morning to be on this Starr Jones segment. I am now not going to be on. Want to know why? …the video game industry people are afraid to go on the air with me.
ECA president Hal Halpin told GamePolitics he would have been pleased to provide counterpoint to Thompson’s view, but is flying to PAX this weekend.
Thompson, coincidentally, nixed an opportunity to debate Hal at PAX…
