DISBARRED!

DISBARRED!

September 25, 2008

In a four-page written order (download here), the Florida Supreme Court today affirmed a referee's recommendation to permanently disbar controversial Miami attorney Jack Thompson.

The action, which takes effect in 30 days, means that Thompson will no longer be licensed to practice law and may not apply for reinstatement. Ever.

In citing a litany of offenses, the Court noted Thompson's extensive pattern of misconduct and cited a "complete lack of remorse." The Court also quoted extensively from the June, 2008 report of Judge Dava Tunis, who served as referee at Thompson's November, 2007 trial on charges brought by the Florida Bar:

In her report, the referee states: Over a very extended period of time involving a number of totally unrelated cases and individuals, [r]espondent has demonstrated a pattern of conduct to strike out harshly, extensively, repeatedly and willfully to simply try to bring as much difficulty, distraction and anguish to those he considers in opposition to his causes.

 

He does not proceed within the guidelines of appropriate professional behavior, but rather uses other means available to intimidate, harass, or bring public disrepute to those whom he perceives oppose him.

Noting that "The Court concludes that the facts, as even more extensively detailed in the referee's report, support the referee's numerous recommendations as to guilt," the justices of the Florida Supreme Court affirmed Thompson's offenses as delineated by Judge Tunis.

Some of these include findings that Thompson made false statements and accusations, repeatedly harassed those he considered opponents, and, while falsely accusing others of "the criminal distribution of sexual materials to minors," himself attached pornography to court filings.

  • [Thompson] made false statements of material fact to courts and repeatedly violated a court order
  • [Thompson] communicated the subject of representation directly with clients of opposing counsel
  • [Thompson] engaged in prohibited ex parte communications
  • [Thompson] publicized and sent hundreds of pages of vitriolic and disparaging missives, letters, faxes, and press releases, to the affected individuals
  • [Thompson] targeted an individual who was not involved with respondent in any way, merely due to "the position [the individual] holds in state and national politics"
  • [Thompson]falsely, recklessly, and publicly accused a judge as being amenable to the "fixing" of cases
  • [Thompson] sent courts inappropriate and offensive sexual materials
  • [Thompson] falsely and publicly accused various attorneys and their clients of engaging in a
    conspiracy/enterprise involving "the criminal distribution of sexual materials to minors" and attempted to get prosecuting authorities to charge these attorneys and their clients for racketeering and extortion
  • [Thompson] harassed the former client of an attorney in an effort to get the client to use its influence to persuade the attorney to withdraw a defamation suit filed by the attorney against respondent
  • [Thompson] retaliated against attorneys who filed Bar complaints against him for his unethical conduct by asserting to their clients, government officials, politicians, the media, female lawyers in their law firm, employees, personal friends, acquaintances, and their wives, that the attorneys were criminal pornographers who objectify women.

The Court also upheld a fine of $43,675 against Thompson.

For his part, Thompson offered his standard-issue bluster, announcing his disbarment in an e-mail which carried the subject line "Now the Fun Begins." Thompson has also filed a request with the U.S. District Court for an emergency stay of the FLSC's order disbarring him.

Re: DISBARRED!

Ignoring this bar on self-submitted filings, respondent has submitted numerous filings in violation of the sanction opinion, including the petition for review of the referee's report. The Clerk properly rejected each of these submissions. Thus, there being no authorized petition for review filed, and the time period to seek review has passed, the Court has treated this as an uncontested case. The Court has reviewed the 169-page corrected report of the referee filed on July 16, 2008, for sufficiency and has determined that permanent disbarment is merited on this record. (This report is posted on the Court's public website). The report Case Nos. SC07-80 and SC07-354

 

What an idiot.  He effectively didn't object at all to Tunis' recommendation because he outright refused to comply with the order that he can't file anything without the signature of a lawyer in good standing.

It doesn't appear he has any ground to stand on for appeal/rehearing given that he effectively pleaded no-contest.

Re: DISBARRED!

It's not over yet... he's got 30 days, and you can guarendarntee he's going to milk it for every last hour he has. Even after that, you're not going to be done with him. He's still going to be the same lingering childish narcisistic... well you get the idea. In fact, I can only forsee his behavior worsening since now, when it's all said and done, and when he knows he has no other recourse, he'll feel completely and utterly insulted because his irreverant self esteem wasn't protected. "The nerve of them rejecting me! It's all (conspiracy)! Well I'll show them!!!!"

He's going to eventually be arrested for taking his harassment to a new level. Give it a couple of years... I guarentee it.

Re: DISBARRED!

A couple years? Try "by next Monday". XD

Game on, brothers and sisters.

Re: DISBARRED!

Yeah, he does still have 30 days, but since he still can't file anything without another lawyer's signature he won't get anything done. Who in their right mind would put their name on something filed by a lawyer who has just been disbarred for inappropriate conduct?

And, like you said, he's going to get arrested sooner or later. He doesn't have his lawyer status to protect him, so he's entirely open to lawsuits for libel, slander, and harassment.

Re: DISBARRED!

Response to his disbarment

http://kotaku.com/5054801/thompson-responds-to-disbarment

Thompson also sent over a press release saying that the disbarment is in retaliation for, among other things, Thompson's Tyndale House book Out of Harm's Way which he says blew the whistle on what he describes as the Florida Supreme Court's attack on his activism against the American entertainment industry.

Re: DISBARRED!

LMAO at the end of his career, he plugs his book..guess that will be the remaining income for him from here on out.

Re: DISBARRED!

The gift that keeps on giving.

If you've ever watched the episode of Behind The Music on "Weird" Al Yankovic, one of the actors from his movie "UHF" showed a less than $1.00 royalty check he got in 1995.

Jack's got enough material for a new book. He can call it "How to kill your law career".

Re: DISBARRED!

No one can say that they didn't see this coming. Thompson's behaviour was reprehensible and, according to the ruling, against the rules of the bar. Therefore the only thing they could do at this point was dibar him permanently.

Of course we're going to see a volcanic repsonse from Thompson. After all this is just going to be one more bit of proof to him of some vast conspiracy directed at Jack Thompson.

It's ironic that a man who wanted his legacy to be that he was the man who destroyed the gaming industry will, in fact, be remembered as man who acted like a jerk to anyone who dared disagree with him. He'll be remembered as an example to other lawyers of what can happen when you forget the first rule of the fanatic, "when you become obsessed with the enemy you become the enemy."

In the end though I take no pleasure in what's happening to Thompson, I pity him. I pity him because he's so full of anger and outrage that he's missing the point and, to me anyway, that's the saddest thing of all. This is not to say that he shouldn't face the consequences of his actions, far from it. If he's half the man he claims he is then he'll accept this ruling and live with it; of course we all know that's not the case.

He'll whine and scream about the injustice of it all and lay the blame of his own actions at the feet of everyone but himself; because nothing is ever his fault.

At any rate many thanks to the Flordia Supreme Court. This was long over due and maybe now Thompson can get a full time gig on Fox News like he seems to want. Afterall he is their go to "first ammendment expert."

Re: DISBARRED!

From that persepctive I can see where some would pity him. However, he had more than his fair share of chances and opportunities to turn things around and do things differently. He chose not to. And based on his response he still hasn't changed. I hope I don't sound like I'm attacking you and/or your point of view on this. That is certainly not my intent. Rather I do aggree with you that it is sad he is not going to learn from this.

So pity? No, I have no pity for him. He is not deserving of pity. If he showed any signs of remorse for his actions or indications that he could or wants to change maybe he could have some pity. Nor do I take joy from this either. I have plenty of other things in my life to take joy in. I do however feel a sense of satisfaction that justice, albeit delayed in my opinion, has been served.

Re: DISBARRED!

Although I don't fully agree with your feelings (I'm flying higher than a kite), I can understand where your pity is coming from. Watching someone utterly destroy themselves is sad to watch, especially when they're wholly unwilling to change his ways. Like a lone lemming plummeting off a cliff to its end, all you can do is watch and shake your head....

However, when that "lemming" threatens your liberties and insults your intelligence at every turn, you kinda wish you could pick him up and hurl him off the edge. I understand why you pity him; I really do. But I just can't share your sentiment for someone who completely deserves his punishment.

Game on, brothers and sisters.

Re: DISBARRED!

 YEAH!

Re: DISBARRED!

Quite frankly I'm shocked. Utterly shocked it took this long for this to happen. I hate to sound like an unsypmathetic p@%#^, but after all the lying, deceiving, insults, under-handed tactics, threats on our rights, freedoms and, at times, even our lives this couldn't have happened to anyone more deserving.

I can only hope when that Penn & Teller episode airs, as JT spews his nonsense they cut in with something like "By the way, did we mention this asshole was disbarred for, among other things, knowingly and repeatedly presenting false information as truth? Yeah, the guy lost his job for being a consumate liar, or as we prefer, bullshiter!"

To answer JT's question "Is this a great conutry or what?"...Yes it is, it truly is.

Never before has my schadenfreude been derived from someone so deserving.  Now that it has been proven in court, he can't very well threaten us with libel when we call him a liar (not that his earlier threats had any merit anyways).

Re: DISBARRED!

Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na, Oh Hell Yeah, Goodbye

October 25th can't come fast enough. Jack Thompson, you lost your license because you refused to practice what you preached about growing up and getting a life. Deep down, you know you only have yourself to blame for it.

Now is this a great country, or what? Yes, it is, since Justice, Freedom, and the Real America prevailed over an assclown named Jack Thompson.

Re: DISBARRED!

Thompson's not going anywhere, folks. Granted, he's been nicely punished. But he can still harass people galore with press statements and torrents of phone calls.

And I'm no lawyer, but I'm pretty sure he's still allowed to sue people pro se as well.

Re: DISBARRED!

However, now because he isn't a lawyer anymore his harrasment is exactly that, and people can file restraining orders on him that can result is harsh fines and even jail time if he violates them.

Re: DISBARRED!

Uhh, guys? I hate to be the cloud on this bright, sunny day, but the beast is not gone. His handlers may have ripped his canines out, but that doesn't mean he can't bite. Now that he doesn't have his law career to hold him back and take up his time, won't he have more time to spread the anti-video game message like some fanatic traveling preacher? Like the antithesis of Jesus--

Hoh, crap. I just realized something: he has the potential to be the AntiChrist! XD

I sincerely doubt it.  Look at it this way, he can bite, sure.  But at worst he can only gum us. 

Re: DISBARRED!

"Now that he doesn't have his law career to hold him back and take up his time"

You make it sound as if he had a law career to begin with.

Re: DISBARRED!

He will have more time to waste on his anti-game crusade, but you're forgetting how he runs his crusade. Jack spends most of his time harassing and slandering people. Now that he isn't a lawyer, he's a lot easier to hit with lawsuits. Being a lawyer gave him a little bit of space to annoy people; without his title he's open to all sorts of restraining orders and defamation lawsuits. If anyone gets a restraining order against Jack, Jack will probably break it within a week, leading to fines or jail time. He'll either end up as another crazy homeless man or someone's loveslave. Either way, he's out of the picture and completely discreditted.

The war is over for now and peace has been restored.  But those who sacrificed themselves for the victory will never return.

Exhausted, X gazes at the destruction he helped cause and wonders why he chose to fight.  Was there another way?

Standing on the cliff, the answers seem to escape him.  He only knows that he'll fight the Mavericks again before he finds his answer.

How long will he keep on fighting?  How long will his pain last?  Maybe only the X-Buster on his hand knows for sure...

------------

30 days be damned, the tyrant is at long last beheaded.  He has met the fate of all bullies.  Whether he was relevant or not will be debated for... weeks, I suppose, but what matters is that the board is now swept clean so the /real/ players can now step forth.  And as this generation gives way to the next, the future looks ever brighter for our kind.

GP: You summon and sue, summon and sue.
I fail to see the logic here.
Is sanity, the price to pay, for cultural crusades?

Jack: Gamers, they are both stubborn and foolish.
It takes them a journey through hell to accept and praise my god.
A fact that tickles the Florida bar's judgement.

GP members: Ah, and your judgement's a great deal of interest.
As they're here, to reclaim the peace that you startled.

Jack: MURDER SIMULATORS!!! That is what you seek.
And this is why I post on your site.

Florida Bar members: You will fumble in opposition of our pursuit of peace.

GP members: Though we encourage! For an opportunity to battle a being of such grand delusions as you, is a sweet fortune!

Now that he's disbarred...

GP: If you plan to pass the bar exam again in your next life, do your homework first.

FB: And the rest is silence.

P.S. Anyone recognise this?

Re: DISBARRED!

I'm lead to believe this is a adaptaion of Hamlet. At least based on the FB line "And the rest is silence". That is part of one of Hamlet's lines. In fact, it's the last part of his final line.

Re: DISBARRED!

I think you're right it does sound like Hamlet, or Shakespeare at the very least.

But this is excellent news :D.

Re: DISBARRED!

We gather here today to pay homage to a lost loved one.

He lived a long, and abused life.  Struggling from day one, and tortured over many, many years.  So promising this great man, this great soul, had been.  Abused and tortured, misused and mistreated.

Mr. Career left behind a loving and caring wife, Mrs. Career.  He also left behind two loving and promising children, his elder child Summer Job and little Afterschool Work.

Mr. Career had attached himself to the wrong person and found himself being torn to shreds by the very person he offered his life and existance to.  Sadly, Mr. Career was plagued by lies and deceit, driving him into a spiral of health problems which finally led to his annihalation.

Ashes to ashes, Dust to dust.

Abuse your loving career, and it's Hell or Bust.

Re: DISBARRED!

Yes in fact it took the good doctor (err what was the judge's name) to make the final decision to pull the plug on Mr. Career his cremation will take place in 30 days.

Tragic.

Re: DISBARRED! hahahahahaha

JT, We're laughing at you not with you. 

He's such a delusional person he's probably thinking that God did this so he could spend more time spamming GP for his quest.  he's gonna probably say that he has many more aces up his hand.

 

EPIC FAIL JACK THOMPSON, GARGANTUAN FAIL

Re: DISBARRED!

I will save the block party for the day when he has no more appeals and the decision is final, and I mean FINAL.  Of course, that's not to say I'm not thrilled by this.  I've been following his fiasco of a career for three years running now, and today reaffirmed my beliefs in karma.

I will also belay my immature side until then; it'll be all the sweeter to rub his smug face in it.

Re: DISBARRED!

I propose that today be declared National Personal responsibility Day On this day we remember that everyone needs to take responsibility for their own actions and the consiquences thereof.

Sorry. EZK. I couldn't resist.

Re: DISBARRED!

National Personal Responsibility day? Sounds like a lame holiday. I say we celebrate this day for a few years then forget about Thompson (even though his wikipedia article will remain huge).

Remember remember the 25th of September. Twas the day Jack Thompson was disbarred (although he still a lawyer till October).

Re: DISBARRED!

Hi folks,

I'm recovering from a pretty severe compulsive gaming habit. However, like you, I'm very glad that Thompson has been disbarred. I've written a short piece on this on my blog.

http://exgamer.net/blog/?p=326

This man doesn't speak for me; we need rational discussion of difficult issues, and frankly, Thompson is insane. I hope you'll visit my site.

Re: DISBARRED!

If this is not the best news I've heard in weeks, it's damn close. Finally, all of jack thompson actions have come home to bring him down and end his legal practice. ti's over jack, And it's your own fault.

As i've said before, And I say again.

Re: DISBARRED!

Woo Hoo! Jack's gonna have to find new avenues to market his brand of BS since the bar won't take it anymore. Supermarket tabloids maybe? Politics (God forbid, please?)?

At any rate, I doubt he could still pursue games via the legal avenue, by hiring other lawyers on his behalf. These guys won't be doing the "JT-Crazy way of persecuting video games", since not many lawyers like being disbarred.

Re: DISBARRED!
Ding, Dong, the troll's disbarred! Who's disbarred? The troll's disbarred! And now, his spam of a law career is oficially over, pending lawyers in good standing having the good sense to just let him rot. But, man, do I wish I could bold-facedly deny reality like that! It oughtta be fun to see him further the level of assery he has been revealed to possess. Here's to thirty days of watching him scramble like a carton of eggs while, trying desperately to remain on the bar, he puts himself in even worse standing and it slowly dawns on him that it's all over. *deep, satisfied breath* *deep, satisfied exhale* Yep, goooood day. No, Luke, I AM the Walrus
Re: DISBARRED!

I think it's official now that Jack Thompson's final TV appearance as an attorney will be on Penn and Teller: Bullshit.

Oh how sweet it is.

Re: DISBARRED!

Not to sneeze on anyone's banana, but has anyone realised that he is going to play the Jack Thompson card about this? There is a nifty list of reasons why he lost his licence and incurred an unpleasant fine, including [making] false statements of material fact to courts and repeatedly [violating] a court order, but you know what his reaction will be.

Dennis McCauley, Take Two, Blank Rome, the ECA, and the games industry at large destroyed my career with false claims and libel. I am working with the authorities to see that these terrorists are brought to justice.

Or something to that effect. Like the killers he tries to defend, he will refused to take responsibility for his own actions.

Re: DISBARRED!

And so shall his hypocrisy and lunacy be revealed for all the land to see, for that is the way of things here in the land of Law.

Re: DISBARRED!

I changed my sig to fit the occasion. Ah we all knew this day would come, hell we kne wit was coming this month and then it arrives and wow, man I almost forgot about it. I will play GTA IV this weekend to celebrate.

Re: DISBARRED!

yeah as glad as i am! (party time!) ...

 

He wont go away.. he will justmartyr himself, about how he 'lost his career' and was 'illegally disbarred' beause of his 'whistle blowing' by a vast conspiracy.

 

The thing is.. some people who dont know him will believe him.
