Bully ruling comes in

The anticipated decision has been made, and Jack Thompson has lost his case, Destructoid reports. Bully will go to market on schedule without any interference. "There's nothing in the game that you wouldn't see on TV every night," Judge Ronald Friedman has ruled. "[I] wouldn't want [my] kids to play the game, but that shouldn't mean that the game won't ship." In reaction, Thompson apparently lost his temper in court. Destructoid writes that the courtroom became "pretty heated," and the judge had to ask Thompson to sit down. The lawyer insisted that Friedman hadn't really played the game, which may have been true, but he was present alongside Thompson and a Take-Two employee while two hours of gameplay were shown. Thompson further rejected an offer to appeal the decision to the Third Appellate Court, saying that Bully would already be in stores by the time the case was heard. The game is due October 17th.
