Bully ruling later today?
Lawyer Jack Thompson e-mailed GamePolitics last night and informed them that "Judge [Ronald] Friedman has seen the game played with me present, and... he has granted my motion to reconvene the hearing at 1:30pm tomorrow (Friday). After argument by both sides, he will rule." Friedman is one of the presiding judges at Florida's Third District Court, which is overseeing a case that would see Bully handed over to Thompson to determine the threat of copycat violence. Yesterday, Friedman himself asked to see the game so he could evaluate its contents. Such a short viewing may well mean that the judge has made up his mind.
