St. Louis County Appeals Video Game Law Ruling

St. Louis officials filed a petition on June 17 appealing a federal ruling that struck down an ordinance that made it illegal to sell or rent violent video games to minors.

The petition asks that the full appellate court hear the case. The Interactive Digital Software Association, which was behind the motion to block the ordinance, countered June 19 with a motion to be reimbursed for attorneys' fees by St. Louis County in the amount of $170,882.40. The IDSA had sued to block the law, and filed the original appeal to the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals after a federal district court ruled in St. Louis's favor. The three-judge panel of the U.S. 8th Circuit that struck down the ordinance on June 3 ruled that the law "is a regulation of speech based on content and does not survive strict scrutiny."
