Judge blocks California law limiting publication of actors' ages

This is the best example of the utterly pathetic mindset of Leftists.

A federal judge has barred the State of California from enforcing a new law limiting online publication of actors' ages.

Acting in a case brought by online movie information website IMDb, U.S. District Court Judge Vince Chhabria ruled Wednesday that the California law likely violates the First Amendment and appears poorly tailored to proponents' stated goal of preventing age discrimination in Hollywood

"Because the government has presented nothing to suggest that [the measure] would actually combat age discrimination [much less that it's necessary to combat age discrimination], there is an exceedingly strong likelihood that IMDb will prevail in this lawsuit," Chhabria wrote in a three-page order.

The judge expressed deep skepticism that the law, which he said appeared to apply only to IMDb, would have any effect on discrimination.
