Jack Jack Jack... so many times we warned you to behave, play nice with the violent gamers... but nooo, you had to go Sue everyone... Bill Gates, God, Take Two... really, what happened to you? You went from a good Lawyer to... Psycho Suing maniac?
So how many of the 27 already convicted guilty charges will be approved by the court?
In early 2007 the Florida Bar filed a five count, 38-page complaint against Florida Lawyer Jack Thompson, seeking sanctions against the outspoken critic of video games. "This is frankly once again just the Bar going off the deep end trying to use Bar rules to limit my First Amendment activism," Thompson said about the matter, according to Law.com. The trial ended in December 2007, and the verdict was expected in late April of this year. Judge Dava Tunis had asked for an extension in order to, among other things, deal with 400 "pleadings, e-mails, letters and missives (including pictorials)" sent by Thompson since the end of the trial. Judge Tunis has now released her report, with recommendations that Thompson be found guilty of 27 of the 31 charges.
These are not small offenses, as Judge Tunis recommended a guilty verdict for, among other things, "knowingly making a false statement of material fact or law to a tribunal," "using means that have no purpose other than to embarrass, delay, or burden a third person," "engaging in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation," and "making statements that the lawyer knows to be false or with reckless disregard as to the truth or falsity concerning to the qualifications or integrity of a judge."
Honestly, what will be of the poor Jack if his license is removed or get sent to jail? can the GTA fanbase go and bring him milk and cookies while he is in the slammer next to Kimbo Slice jailmate?
