Yesterday Spong.com checked some facts regarding an email sent to Microsoft regarding Halo 3. The email was sent by Florida lawyer, John Bruce Thompson. The email contained the statement: "The Beta (of Halo 3) version that was released last week shows us all just how violent the game is and how inappropriate it is for play by anyone under 17."
Spong asked the following questions by email:
1) When did you play the Halo 3 Beta? I'd like to check for factual purposes.
2) What's your gamertag? Again, a fact check.
As ever, the lawyer responded. As ever, the responses were fact free. Here they are, in order:
"Your query is relevant to absolutely nothing."
In short, it is still unclear if the lawyer has played the game that he's basing a campaign on. What's as concerning is that a legal professional can state that evidence is irrelevant.
