While Leland Yee maybe disappointed with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision on Brown v. EMA, he says that he isn’t done with the fight against violent videogames, according to multiple reports. One story from ABC station KGO and another from newspaper The San Francisco Appeal report says that Yee was heartened by the dissenting opinions of Thomas and Breyer, and that comments from Justices John Roberts and Samuel Alito have left the door open for future legislation.
"Even with the existing court, there may be, if we craft the bill differently, there may be a basis for trying to get another hearing within the Supreme Court on this critical matter," Yee said.
Yee added that he will be studying the concurring and dissenting opinions to try to craft a revised bill that will pass a constitutional test. Of course, maybe if he had done this in the first place instead of relying on questionable research and political bluster, we’d be reporting on a different decision today.
