Bully to make a court appearance

Bully to make court visit

A judge in Florida's Third District Court of Appeal, Ronald Friedman, has asked Take-Two to produce a copy of Bully before the end of Thursday, GamePolitics reports. Friedman intends to review the game for as much as 100 hours to determine whether it could be the "public nuisance" described by plaintiff lawyer Jack Thompson. Thompson filed a lawsuit back in August, demanding to see the game personally so that "I and others can analyze it to determine whether it still poses a threat of copycat violence in our schools." In an odd statement, Friedman says he hopes Wal-Mart will reconsider selling Bully to minors if he decides the game deserves a Mature rating. It's set to be rated Teen by the ESRB - a private industry organization. The courts can only ban the game or permit sales as usual.
