Thompson speaking in 2006A 2006 case raised in New Mexico, USA by attorney Jack Thompson which alleged that GTA: Vice City was a catalyst in a brutal murder was thrown out of court yesterday. In 2004, teenager Cody Posey murdered his father, stepmother and stepsister, resulting in Thompson raising a case claiming that Take Two and Sony were to blame as the teenager had played GTA: Vice City.

"We are pleased that the Court took decisive and appropriate action to dismiss a case that Take-Two has always known had no basis in law or in fact."
-- Take Two Interactive Statement, December 19th 2007

The Judge disposed of the case because neither Sony nor Take Two Interactive has offices or business presence in the state of New Mexico. Thompson has 30 days to file an appeal.
