ESA suing California

From the "that didn't take long" file comes news that the ESA has sued the state of California over their recently passed law regarding selling video games to minors.  Look, we all know that selling violent games to minors is bad but laws like this are so poorly worded and obtuse that enforcing them becomes a major burden and expense for tax payers.  That of course is besides all of the fun constitutional issues that laws like this raise.  This marks the third lawsuit that the ESA has going right now as they are currently suing the states of Illinois and Michigan for similar laws.  Ars Technica has posted a good article with a detailed description of the lawsuits here.

Kotaku also has a nice summary of some of the fallout from the law being signed last week.
