Take Two Interactive Software, the publisher of Grand Theft Auto, has sued the Chicago Transit Authority in the Southern District of New York for pulling advertisements for the video game. The suit alleges (among other things) that the CTA’s actions: are unlawful content based restrictions that violate Take Two’s rights under the First Amendment; violate Take Two’s due process rights; violate Take Two’s right to equal protection under the Fourteenth Amendment; constitute a breach of contract.
As of our commute in this morning, at least some of these ads still appear to be in place.
A copy of the complaint is located here.
