Products, Negligence Claims Unavailable For "Desensitization"

Meow Media, Inc. (of the Persian Kitty site) and others including the makers of the film "The Basketball Diaries," and of the video games "Doom" and "Mortal Kombat," won their case today before the Sixth Circuit, concerning whether they could bear civil liability for Michael Carneal's 1997 shooting spree in Kentucky. An old but good Frontline summary of civil suits arising from school shootings is here, and Howard Bashman has more concerning James v. Meow Media, Inc.
