DAILY MANIFESTO

Jack In The Box?

Posted on Wednesday, October 25 @ 20:46:24 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
I always hate giving crazed lunatic Jack Thompson any more free press, but he finally might have bit off more than he can chew.

You all must know who Jack Thompson is by now. However, if you've been living under a rock, his wikipedia entry and this article about how he tried to arrest my boss will sum up the picture nicely.

Jack's latest lawsuit was to try and stop the distribution of the new game Bully (which I am more than halfway through now). He failed, but the plaintiffs in the case asked that Jack be brought back to face contempt of court charges because of Jack's many media stunts and "open letters" during the trial.

Jack's response? More media stunts and press releases. Of course. On top of that, his court appearance today was a total madhouse. According to Destructoid, who had a man on the scene, Jack kept waving a big sign at the increasingly angry judge, and peace officers were summoned.

Jack had previously asked that Judge Friedman recuse himself because Jack planned to run against him in the next election. And the judge did recuse himself... but only so that he could personally file formal complaints against Jack with the Florida Bar Association. That, boys and girls, is a very serious step.

So now another, less sympathetic judge gets to decide on the contempt issue, which could include jail time (but probably won't); and Jack could potentially be disbarred. Crazy Jack has had run-ins with the Florida Bar before, but this will hopefully be his last.

Ready to remove the word "Attorney" from your business cards, Jack? And yes, Jack, I photoshopped you into a straightjacket. I also made you look fat. I've been playing Bully all day. What are you going to do about it, fatty?

UPDATE: The fine folks at Destructoid put their video of the hearing up on YouTube for the world. Warning: Mostly contains scenes of the author stuck in traffic and a judge talking in a boring monotone. Law & Order lied to us again.
