June 29, 2010 -

And now for some internal stuff. The ECA has hired lawfirm Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP to assist in drafting its official friend of the court amicus brief related to the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court review of Schwarzenegger v. EMA. Full press release follows:

The Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA), the non-profit membership organization that represents gamers, today announced that they have retained leading international law firm Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP to assist with the drafting of the ECA’s official “friend of the court” document (amicus brief) to the U.S. Supreme Court for the upcoming violence in video games case, Schwarzenegger v. EMA. Work on the brief is underway and the final version will be submitted by the ECA to the Court on, or before, its scheduled due date of September 17, 2010.

“We’re thrilled to join forces with Hughes Hubbard & Reed on this extremely important submission to the Court,” said Jennifer Mercurio, Vice President and General Counsel for the ECA. “Video game consumers need their voices to be heard, and Hughes Hubbard’s expertise and proven track record in this area is vital as we continue our crusade to defend gaming, unite gamers and protect their First Amendment rights.”

In conjunction with the amicus brief, the ECA has initiated a petition, which will serve as a collective voice of gamers and will be submitted to the Court prior to the hearing.

This is good news. 

 

However, why is it that almost every press release regarding a partnership or something always seems to use the term "thrilled"?

Re: ECA Retains Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP for ...

According to Wikipedia, Hughes Hubbard & Reed is one of the best firms in the country.  Good to hear.

Good luck ECA and EMA.

The very last thing they are thinking about is the children.

InfophileSony's customer service has always been crap, but up till now it's been manageable crap. A few cases of people having to pay for being hacked at worst, the Other OS removal... This one is going to be much worse for them.03/28/2015 - 1:34pm

Papa MidnightSure thing!03/27/2015 - 9:00pm

Andrew EisenThat would mean either Nintendo's next home console will be out by next year or the next Zelda game is suffering a two year delay. Both extraordinarily unlikely.03/27/2015 - 8:34pm
Matthew Wilsonsome people are thinking we might have a Twilight Princess situation on our hands, what do you guys think?03/27/2015 - 8:01pm
MechaCrashMiyamoto once said "a delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever." While this can be taken to excess, it is good that Nintendo remembers it.03/27/2015 - 7:44pm
MaskedPixelanteYay for it not being a buggy mess like AC Unity. Boo that it got delayed til November 2016.03/27/2015 - 7:07pm
Andrew EisenAgreed. Considering we've seen nothing of the game (and those who did see it last E3, said it was super duper early) I would be quite surprised to see it this year.03/27/2015 - 5:28pm
Matthew WilsonI am sure star fox is 2016 too.03/27/2015 - 5:14pm
ZippyDSMleeThe primary reasons I would get a Nintendo system is Zelda and Metroid, Metroid prime collection was beyond words awesome even if 3 was the weakest one. I played TWP on the emulator I have Skyward Sword but like TWP I been putting it off…. LOL03/27/2015 - 5:14pm
Daniel LewisI actually thought star fox would be the game to be delayed,hopefully that isn't as well!03/27/2015 - 5:13pm
Daniel Lewiswoah post shared at the same time matthew,you just beat me!03/27/2015 - 5:11pm
