Kelsey Jans FRL 201 1/15/07 Brief: Case 4.2 pg.85 ( Chapter 4.) Interactive Digital Software Association vs. St. Louis County, Missouri In the case of Interactive Digital Software Association Vs. St Louis County, Missouri, the court is dealing with two different laws. These two laws are the First amendment which guarantees freedom of speech to all Americans as well as the ordinance passed in St. Louis County, Missouri which bans violent video games to minors. In the original trial court, the plaintiffs argued that the ordinance in St. Louis County, Missouri had violated the first amendment. The ordinance stated that it was unlawful for a person to sell, rent, or make “graphically violent” video games available to minors as well as preventing such games to be played by minors without guardians consent. The court had to determine whether this ordinance is a legitimate constraint since the ordinance allegedly helped younger children from these graphically violent video games.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
