He Shall Be Missed
Posted on Wednesday, June 4 @ 18:19:49 PST by Duke_FerrisAnti video game attorney Jack Thompson is about to lose his law licence for professional misconduct, probably for 10 years, after which he has to apply to the bar again if he wants to be a lawyer. Previosly found guilty on 27 violations of conduct (see last week's episode in which Thompson compared himself to Jesus), Jack's sanctioning hearing was today. The Florida Bar requested that Jack be disbarred for ten years, and considering that his response was to storm out of the courtroom, I'm not sure why the judge wouldn't grant that request.
According to GamePolitics, Thompson also fought with the judge over the placement of a podium and the fact that he was not allowed to read his (14 page) objection aloud. Then he handed out copies of the objection, including dumping one in an unwilling lawyer's lap.
Before he left, both Thompson (and his objection) stated that the judge is not really a judge, so the entire hearing was a farce.
Way to make friends and influence people, Jack.
