    Default Game Over for Jack Thompson

    http://kotaku.com/5054772/jack-thompson-disbarred

    Is it finally game over for Florida lawyer and violent video game opponent Jack Thompson? Judgment has been entered in the case that started last year and came to a head when Judge Dava Tunis recommended permanent disbarment for the bombastic, showboating law man. The court has approved the report and has ordered that JT is official disbarred as of 30 days from today.


    The Court approves the corrected referee's report and John Bruce Thompson is permanently disbarred, effective thirty days from the date of this order so that respondent can close out his practice and protect the interests of existing clients. If respondent notifies the Court in writing that he is no longer practicing and does not need the thirty days to protect existing clients, this Court will enter an order making the permanent disbarment effective immediately. Respondent shall accept no new business from the date this order is filed.


    Note that Thompson still has a chance for a retrial, only due to court sanctions the motion must me submitted by a member of the Florida Bar in good standing, and I don't know that anyone wants to touch this one. It's also worth noting that along with disbarment, Thompson has been ordered to reimburse the Florida Bar fees amounting to $43,675.35. Ouch.

    I'm afraid someone will take his place, someone who is capable of getting games banned.

    Being disbarred doesn't prevent him from being a douche who does everything in his power to piss on the videogame industry.

    Tea-Bagging since 1995

    Don't count Thompson out yet. As a private citizen he can still file lawsuits and act as his own lawyer. This just means he'll be actin on behalf of himself instead of idiots stupid enough to hire him as a lawyer, or he's conned into being his client on the promise of money.

    It is about time though. Thompson is a blight on the face of this earth.

    I think Mahirim should be cut from the release version of Darkfall.
