A federal judge has denied a request from arcade industry lawyers for an injunction to keep Indianapolis arcade restrictions from going into effect. The amusement machine industry had hoped to keep the Indianapolis rules from going into effect pending the resolution of the case, not at least to dissuade other cities from enacting similar measures before the courts have a chance to rule on the legality of the matter. ""It would be an odd conception of the First Amendment," said Judge David Hamilton in denying the injunction, "that would allow a state to prevent a boy from purchasing a magazine containing pictures of topless women in provocative poses, but give that same boy a constitutional right to train to become a sniper at the local arcade without his parent's permission." The Indianapolis restrictions are set to begin October 12, though lawyers for the amusement machine industry are seeking an emergency injunction while they appeal the rejection of the preliminary injunction.
