Legal and criminal activities
  • Lawyer and GTA critic Jack Thompson stated that he would take measures to stop the sale of Rockstar Games titles to minors resulting in Take-Two Interactive filing a lawsuit in Florida to block him from trying to declare their games as a public nuisance. Thompson later filed a countersuit but both parties reached a settlement on April 20. Thompson would file another lawsuit on September 18 claiming that lawyer Tom Goldberg, who is assassinated in Grand Theft Auto IV (released in a GTA IV trailer) was based upon himself.
  • On December 19, a judge in the US state of New Mexico threw out a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Jack Thompson on behalf of Cody Posey, who had been convicted of killing his father, stepmother and stepsister, as Sony and Take-Two did not have offices in the state. Grand Theft Auto games were believed to have influenced Cody.
  • British teenager Ryan Chinnery began his criminal activities, which included attempted rape and grievous bodily harm. Grand Theft Auto games were believed by some to have influenced his actions.
