Judge refuses to ban Bully

Thompson inevitably upset.

Despite the best efforts of anti-games crusader Jack Thompson, a judge in the US has decided against banning the sale of Rockstar's Bully (renamed Canis Canem Edit over here) in Florida.

After viewing a two hour tape of in-game footage, Miami-Dade County judge Ronald Friedman agreed the game did not feature content or gameplay that would warrant banning the title.

Thompson had previously been granted the right to preview a copy of Bully in order to have its content assessed by a third party.

After the Miami-Dade County's judgement, Thompson sent an open letter criticising Friedman and his methods, stating: "What you conducted in your chambers, Judge, was the equivalent of Iran leading UN weapons inspectors around the country taking them to places where the illegal activity was not occurring."
