Dear Mr. Nader,

Thank you for your letter, article and statutory excerpts regarding the practice of staged acts of violence conducted by the National Hockey League.

While we agree that the level of violence in hockey games has reached repugnant levels, the issue of whether these games or the conduct of these “staged fights” come under the purview of the California State Athletic Commission is one that has yet to be reached. That issue would
fall under the purview of the Department of Consumer Affairs.

Accordingly, I am forwarding your letter with attachments to DCA Legal Affairs, Anita Scuri, Supervising Senior Legal Counsel for the California State Athletic Commission. They will determine whether this matter is one that should be addressed by the Commission.


Karen Chappelle
Supervising Deputy Attorney General
Licensing Section
