June 29, 2010 -

And now for some internal stuff. The ECA has hired lawfirm Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP to assist in drafting its official friend of the court amicus brief related to the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court review of Schwarzenegger v. EMA. Full press release follows:

The Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA), the non-profit membership organization that represents gamers, today announced that they have retained leading international law firm Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP to assist with the drafting of the ECA’s official “friend of the court” document (amicus brief) to the U.S. Supreme Court for the upcoming violence in video games case, Schwarzenegger v. EMA. Work on the brief is underway and the final version will be submitted by the ECA to the Court on, or before, its scheduled due date of September 17, 2010.

“We’re thrilled to join forces with Hughes Hubbard & Reed on this extremely important submission to the Court,” said Jennifer Mercurio, Vice President and General Counsel for the ECA. “Video game consumers need their voices to be heard, and Hughes Hubbard’s expertise and proven track record in this area is vital as we continue our crusade to defend gaming, unite gamers and protect their First Amendment rights.”

In conjunction with the amicus brief, the ECA has initiated a petition, which will serve as a collective voice of gamers and will be submitted to the Court prior to the hearing.

This is good news. 

 

However, why is it that almost every press release regarding a partnership or something always seems to use the term "thrilled"?

Re: ECA Retains Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP for ...

According to Wikipedia, Hughes Hubbard & Reed is one of the best firms in the country.  Good to hear.

Good luck ECA and EMA.

Matthew WilsonI went as a kid. no real desire to go back.05/06/2015 - 8:34pm
Andrew EisenI'll go there someday. Just don't have the money or time right now. Need someone to go with too and that makes it even more of a logistical challenge.05/06/2015 - 8:32pm

Andrew EisenWinter is the worst for me. Especially around Christmas time.05/06/2015 - 8:26pm
Wonderkarpknow what I hate? Month of May. my Sinus's are on fire.05/06/2015 - 8:25pm
Andrew EisenIn other news, I just realized what a mistake it was to start my 30 Days of Netflix project on YouTube the same month Age of Ultron came out.05/06/2015 - 8:24pm
Goth_SkunkI know. :P05/06/2015 - 8:13pm
Andrew EisenGoth - Great. Just don't be a dick about it! (not aimed at you)05/06/2015 - 8:13pm
Matthew Wilson@goth do it in a reasonable manner thought. do not harass her.05/06/2015 - 8:13pm
Mattsworknamelots of gamers fall into that p roblem, as do some feminists and other grooups05/06/2015 - 8:11pm
Goth_SkunkI think when someone is as influential as Sarkeesian is, having and espousing that opinion is dangerous. It has to be challenged. She has to be told, 'No, you're wrong about this.' And her influence should suffer as a result.05/06/2015 - 8:11pm
Mattsworknamegg has its bad actors and most moderate ggs dislike or outright work against them. be careful not to let your own hate or bias make you act like those you accuse05/06/2015 - 8:10pm
Andrew EisenMatt - Hell, sometimes minorities (peoples, opinions, whatever) themselves are just so damn scary to a number of the majority that they get marginalized whether there were so called bad actors or not.05/06/2015 - 8:09pm
Mattsworknamemechacrash, my point was that groups get marked by the actions of minoritys among them. as andrew points out, this isn't just feminist or gg, it's universal due to the wide spread use of social media05/06/2015 - 8:07pm
Andrew EisenI meant there's nothing wrong with having that opinion, not that it's completely unassailable. It's certainly not.05/06/2015 - 8:07pm
Andrew EisenOf course she does. She's linked to several of them.05/06/2015 - 8:05pm
Goth_SkunkI'm disagreeing with your statement that there's nothing wrong with the opinion. And I certainly am NOT fine with her opinion. I'm fine with her right to say it.05/06/2015 - 8:05pm
