US Supreme Court debates games
A controversial law restricting the sale of video games in the state of California will be considered by the US Supreme Court, marking the first time games have been debated before the country's highest court.
The law, which is backed by sitting Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, has already been nullified by a lower appellate court. Schwarzenegger appealed to the Supreme Court and his case has been accepted for review.
Before it was struck down by the lower court, the law required fines up to 1,000 dollars to be issued to any retailer caught selling games to minors.
It's likely the decision by the lower court will be upheld by the Supreme Court, though a number of surprising decisions handed down by the current court could result in a surprise decision when the case is heard sometime in the new session beginning in October.
