Jack Thompson Down

The Courts

CoolC (1041878) writes "Gamepolitics is reporting that attorney Jack Thompson is to face a "disciplinary hearing before a referee appointed by the Florida Supreme Court." The attorney faces five counts of professional misconduct, three of which are correlated with his ongoing campaign against violent video games. Kotaku.com follows up on this, noting that "the seemingly unstable attorney whose tirades against judges and attorneys after he loses a case are more memorable than anything he's actually done to further a case." Thompson faces the possibility of disciplinary action up to and including disbarment."
