Thompson threatens lawsuit over Bully

Thompson's Bully lawsuit

Regardless of the fact that the game isn't finished, lawyer Jack Thompson has threatened Take-Two and Wal-Mart with a lawsuit if they fail to "forthwith provide me with a copy of Bully so that I and others can analyze it to determine whether it still poses a threat of copycat violence in our schools," according to a fax obtained by Bit-Tech. He argues that several school shootings have involved "training" from videogames, going so far as to say this is "well known." No ruling or academic body has ever agreed with this. Thompson's letter continues with a tirade of accusations, wandering from calling Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas a "murder simulator," to charging the ESRB with "illicit collaboration" with Take-Two.
