BREAKING NEWS!: Jack Thompson Disbarred!

All things controller driven will be talked about here.

Jack Thompson makes an ass of himself, YET AGAIN

Postby Theta on Sun Mar 18, 2007 6:40 pm

So, if you've been following the gaming news, you might all be aware that media whore Jack Thompson was planning a lawsuit to block "Manhunt 2" and "Grand Theft Auto IV", neither of which we know anything about. Take-Two, obviously tired of Thompson's shit, is apparently planning to hit him first. His response is this press release:

Dear Gamers and Gamer Publications on the Internet and Elsewhere:

I have been praying, literally, that Take-Two and its lawyers would do something so stupid, so arrogant, so dumb, even dumber than what they have to date done, that such a misstep would enable me to destroy Take-Two. With the filing of this SLAPP lawsuit last week, my prayers are finally answered.

This lawsuit, filed in US District Court for the Southern District of Florida, is, without a doubt, the single dumbest thing I have ever seen any lawyers do in my thirty years of practicing law -- while in continuous good standing to do so with The Florida Bar, I might add, the shock radio and video game industry's efforts notwithstanding.

I encourage folks to read Psalm 35, a Psalm of David, which is brilliant in its entirety (since God Himself wrote it), but for those who don't own a Bible or who think their hands will catch on fire if they touch one, here is the salient portion that applies to this lawsuit:

7 For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit,
which without cause they have digged for my soul.

8 Let destruction come upon him at unawares;
and let his net that he hath hid catch himself:
into that very destruction let him fall.

9 And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD:
it shall rejoice in his salvation.

The pit Take-Two has dug for itself will be patently clear next week when I strike back. Oh, and by the way, the entire Take-Two management and board will be gone on March 23, so this pit-digging comes at a very bad time indeed.

Amen, and Praise be to God Almighty, maker of Heaven, Earth, and yes, the maker even video games.

Jack Thompson


Among the dumb things Take-Two has done is, well, consistently kick his ass. I fully look forward to this suit being welcomed by the Florida courts, who are no doubt sick of seeing the honorable Mr. Thompson flailing about in areas outside his speciality.

Also, apparently Thompson believes nobody checks up on him outside of his press releases; people in the middle of disbarment proceedings are not generally considered "in good standing."

You might know him better as the guy who got 2 Live Crew thrown out of Florida back in the early '90s. And, yes, he's an asshat; this press release is characteristic of, well, pretty much every time he opens his mouth.

Why Jack Thompson hasn't been disbarred yet is a mystery. And if he consider God to be the creator of video games, shouldn't he accept GTAIV and Manhunt 2? They are God's work after all. And he seems to put a lot of faith into this God of his.

It won't be a mystery for long. He's up on ethics charges at the Florida bar; his big gambit was to sue them for bias and demand the complaint be put into mediation...which, of course, failed. Now he's facing disbarment, and honestly, considering the guy has irritated Florida politicians and lawyers even more than he's irritated gamers (every time he makes an ass of himself in another state, the Florida bar hears about it), it's unlikely he's going to weasel out of it. Especially since he was stupid enough to accuse his opponent of being a child pornographer in front of a microphone.

I just couldn't resist this addendum: Jack's definition of "striking back" is to put out a press release accusing Take-Two of violating the RICO act, which would be a very serious charge if a five year old couldn't disprove it in court.

Yes, Jack thinks that a game publisher releasing a game to retail outlets qualifies as "racketeering." He also thinks the blog GamePolitics and the strip "Penny Arcade" is involved.

So, in other words, he's got nothing. He can't bring the nuisance suit he was threatening to bring because Take Two beat him to it. This whole hissy fit probably just added fuel to the disbarment fire.

Let me know what you as a lawyer think of this document. I know it's total bullshit; the "racketeering" is the suppression of Thompson's civil rights...which doesn't fit the definition of racketeering. But I'd be interested to learn how, precisely, Thompson is making himself look like an assclown.

Just a quick update: Thompson and T2 have settled out of court. Essentially, according to the terms of the settlement, Thompson has agreed not to sue (or even make threats about suing) Take-Two, not to accuse Take-Two or any retail outlet carrying their games of breaking the law, and to only communicate with T2 through their legal firm, Blank Rome.

He still has his constitutional rights, of course; he can bitch about GTA in front of a microphone all he wants, and can serve as counsel in lawsuits brought against Take-Two.

But what this boils down to is that it's over, and Thompson had to eat crow to stay out of jail. Thompson can no longer be directly obnoxious to Take-Two. He can still irritate gamers, but he's going to have to find another company to pick on.

Sorry, this guy's activity is too funny not keep updating on.

http://kotaku.com/gaming/legal/jack-sues-kotaku-25 5321.php

Essentially, he's suing Kotaku for what OTHER people have said on the site. The amusing part is that the other defendants in the suit are the Florida bar and the state Supreme Court.

No, seriously. Read the complaint. It's rambling and (of course) silly but essentially what it boils down to is that Thompson feels that by telling him not to file pointless lawsuits and handing down judgements that follow the law of the land, that his civil rights are being infringed upon and that he's being discriminated against for being a Christian.


Something I wish somebody would explain to the far-right: yes, you do, in fact, have the right to free speech. However, so does everyone else. Contradicting your statements and/or pointing out crippling factual errors, flaws in your argumentation, or highlighting how your statements are illogical is not oppressing you.

And think hard about what you do to people you disagree with before you say that it is.

BREAKING NEWS!: Jack Thompson Disbarred!

Postby King Psyz on Thu Sep 25, 2008 1:27 pm

Topless Robot wrote:Oh, it's true. The crusading lawyer who has blamed videogames for every violent act committed in America for the last 200 years and noted jackass Jack Thompson has just been disbarred from practicing the law, after being found guilty of professional misconduct in his ongoing Florida trial, and disbarring from practicing law. Thompson, of course, believes that this entire case is "revenge" for his book "exposing" and prior case against the Florida supreme court, and not because he's a raving loony who even most other anti-videogame crusaders think is crazy. The Escapist sums it up most eloquently:

The Escapist wrote:While this is the end of Thompson's legal career, it almost certainly won't be the end of his efforts to capsize the videogame industry. If anything, Thompson's rhetoric may become even more heated, as he will no longer be constrained by the guidelines and restrictions of the legal profession - not that such regulation ever had much impact on his behavior to begin with. But his status as a former lawyer, and the circumstances of his disbarment, will be inevitably intertwined with any of his future media interactions, lending far greater accuracy to his credibility than we've seen in the past.

Topless Robot wrote:This is probably true, but we can save those worries for the future. Today should be a day of celebration for both gamers and those with common sense, Today, the bad guy lost, and the good guys won.

lol, i just wikie'd him for the hell of it, I was aware of the gaming and rap music battles he had been waging, but not about his obsession with destroying Janet Reno, hahahahaha.

What a kook.

Campaign against Janet Reno
Thompson first met Janet Reno in November 1975, when he applied for a job as an assistant State's Attorney in Dade County, but was not hired.[11] In 1988, he ran for prosecutor against then incumbent Dade County State Attorney Janet Reno. At the time, Thompson was involved in a feud with WIOD Radio host Neil Rogers and Reno had declined his request to prosecute Rogers.[12] ...Thompson gave Reno a letter at a campaign event requesting that she check a box to indicate whether she was homosexual, bisexual, or heterosexual. Thompson said that Reno then put her hand on his shoulder and responded, "I'm only interested in virile men. That’s why I'm not attracted to you." {Moo comment: SICK BURN!][14][15] He filed a police report accusing her of battery for touching him. In response, Reno asked Florida governor Bob Martinez to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate.[16] The special prosecutor rejected the charge, concluding that it was "a political ploy." Reno was ultimately re-elected with 69% of the vote. Thompson repeated allegations that Reno was a lesbian when she was nominated as U.S. Attorney General, leading one of her supporters, lieutenant governor Buddy MacKay, to dismiss him as a "kook."[14]

In 1990, after his election loss, Thompson began a campaign against the efforts of Switchboard of Miami, a social services group of which Reno was a board member. Thompson charged that the group placed "homosexual-education tapes" in public schools. Switchboard responded by getting the Florida Supreme Court to order that he submit to a psychiatric examination. Thompson did so and passed, and since then has stated on more than one occasion that he is "the only officially certified sane lawyer in the entire state of Florida
