I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Jail Time For Jack?

Posted on Thursday, March 20 @ 21:49:31 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
How crazy is Jack Thompson? So crazy he just might have bought himself some jail time is the surprising answer. Damn! Even I didn't think he was that crazy.

This morning the Florida Supreme Court sanctioned Jack Thompson, directing him not to file anything directly to the court.  This is because he  has been constantly wasting the court's time by filing lots of crazy stuff. Most famously a brief that included gay porn.

As of this morning, if jack wants to file anything with the court, he has to get a lawyer to do it on his behalf - a lawyer who is probably unwilling to risk his career by filing bizarre stuff for Mr. Thompson.

Jack's response? Well according to Game Politics, he filed two more motions. Disobeying a court order is called "contempt of court", and Jack, as a lawyer should clearly know better.

The court has a lot of leeway in handing down contempt of court rulings, including both fines and jail time. My guess is that because it's the same day as the ruling, he'll manage to weasel out of it by claiming he didn't know yet.

 

That's if he doesn't do it again....
