Via WWMT TV: Alabama court upholds suit against “Grand Theft Auto”

The Alabama Supreme Court has ruled to keep alive a $600 million lawsuit against the makers of “Grand Theft Auto.”

The suit blames the violent video game for the murders of three-person night shift at a rural police department.

I do not know any more about this case save what is in this very brief story. However, I have a hard time with any liability for a company producing pop culture (like the idea that certain rock music has cauased suicide, and so forth).

The people responsible for the deaths in this case are the people who committed murder–not the manufacturers of a video game.

(And, an interesting story given this week’s Boston Legal).
