Columbine Video Game Lawsuit Dismissed

from the phew dept

A judge has thrown out the lawsuit of a Columbine family who’s son was shot in the tragedy there three years ago. The lawsuit tried to blame several video game and movie makers for causing Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold to go on their rampage. Yes, it is tragic what happened, but to blame the video game and moviemakers is ridiculous. People are responsible for their own actions, and to blame it on movies or videogames that millions of other people saw (and didn’t go out and murder innocent civilians) is going too far. I’m glad a judge saw through this and tossed it out.
