Midway Entertainment Requesting a Dismissal

Midway Entertainment, distributors of the video game Doom, are asking a federal court judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the family of slain teacher Dave Sanders and other victims of the 1999 Columbine shootings.

The class action lawsuit seeks $5 billion in punitive damages from 25 entertainment companies. A separate suit has been filed by the Sanders family citing that there is evidence that violent media lead to the violent behavior of the two gunmen. A similar lawsuit against video game makers, in an unrelated shooting in Kentucky, was dismissed in April 2000 after the judge determined that video games are not subject to product liability laws. A hearing has not been set in either case.
