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 story is too old to be commented.

Not really a good thing, with him gone after a while it will give an opportunity for genuinely intelligent individuals to take his place. With Jack Thompson it was easy to shoot down anyone who criticized gaming because he made himself and all his peers look bad, but then someone who actually knows what he is talking about could come and cause bigger problems.

'bout friggin' time!

"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"

He should have to pay 10 times that amount as much time and money he wasted in the court system.

I'd say "yay" but he is so irrelevant that it probably wouldnt be worth the effort.
