A law in the state of Michigan which bans the sale of violent video games to minors has been ruled by a US District Court judge as unconstitutional. Issued in Detroit, the ruling contends that video games were protected under the US constitution's First and Fourteenth Amendments. Federal District Judge George Caram Steeh claimed that the ruling was based on a lack of substantial evidence to show violent video games cause minors to have aggressive feelings or engage in aggressive behaviour.
